Faulkner May Try Again

Shannon Faulkner announced in a court affidavit that she still wishes to graduate from the Citadel. However, so as to avoid the emotional pain and isolation she felt earlier, she would like other women to join her if she re-enters. The Citadel is now fighting a plaintiff motion to add Nancy Mellette, a senior at a North Carolina military prep academy who also wishes to attend the Citadel, to Faulkner’s suit. The Court plans to rule on that motion, Faulkner’s request for re-admittance and the Constitutionality of a Citadel-like program set up at Converse College in November.
