Andrew Griles, of Charlotte Court House, has earned Dean’s List recognition for fall 2016 at The Citadel.

According to a press release, Dean’s List recognition is given to cadets registered for 12 or more semester hours and whose grade point average is 3.2 or higher with no grade below a C for the previous semester’s work.

Officials said in the release that, The Citadel, with its iconic campus located in Charleston, S.C., offers a classic military college education for young men and women profoundly focused on leadership excellence and academic distinction.

The Citadel Graduate College offers 26 graduate degree programs with 42 concentration options, 24 graduate certificate programs, and seven evening undergraduate programs, through an all-evening schedule, with many programs now fully online. The Citadel has been named Best Public College in the South by U.S. News and World report for six consecutive years.”
