Scholarship Established in Memory of Citadel KA
The family of Joseph C. Antwine (Theta Commission – Citadel ’12) has established a Citadel Foundation scholarship in his memory. On November 22, 2013 Deputy Antwine, of the Florence County Sheriff’s Office, was responding to a call for backup from a fellow deputy when he was involved in a car accident. He passed away as a result of his injuries a week later at the age of 23.
The Deputy Joseph C. Antwine Memorial Scholarship will provide financial aid for cadets majoring in criminal justice. Joseph’s family has raised the $2,500 annual amount through various fundraisers, but is hoping to raise the $50,000 to endow the scholarship.
During his time at the Citadel, Joseph was involved in multiple organizations including: the Honor Committee, the Criminal Justice Society, where he serve two terms as president, and the Reenactment Society. He was initiated into Kappa Alpha Order on May, 5th, 2012 upon graduation.
“Joseph held the institution, what it stands for, and the values it instills in very high regard,” commented Joseph’s mother, Maibritt Tunstall. “We deduced that establishing a scholarship to help those in need, who have similar aspirations to his, would be the most beneficial way of aiding our endeavor.”
If you are interested in contributing to the scholarship fund, please contact the Citadel Foundation at (843) 953-5297.
