The Celtic Collection gives The Dirk Award

For the second year in a row, The Celtic Collection has presented The Dirk Award to the cadet who has demonstrated leadership and dedication to The Citadel Pipe Band. The Citadel is a military college in Charleston South Carolina, founded in 1842 and well known for producing leaders . The Citadel has one of the few military Pipe bands that competes at Highland Games in the United States. It takes discipline to meet the critera of the school and devote time to the practice and extra activities required of the band members. This year the award was given to Cadet Captain Jonathan Shegog. Shegog is the only cadet to serve as the pipe major for two consecutive years in the history of the school. Pictured above is Captain S. James Dillahey, director of Piping for The Citadel, presenting the award to Cadet Captain Shegog on May 9th, 2009.
