Austin Ajami of Pocasset is one of the 61 cadets who will comprise the Summerall Guards for The Citadel Class of 2021.
In normal times the changing of the guard ceremony would have taken place on this day as part of the annual Corps Day/Recognition Day weekend ceremonies. The Class of 2020 Summerall Guards would have performed their last precision drills as a unit and then passed their rifles to the new platoon.
Ordinarily the Class of 2021 Summerall Guards would have performed for the first time, but cannot due to the campus closure related to COVID-19. The college is recognizing them by announcing their names.
