Today’s photo is from the 1960’s and shows a Clemson Cadet ushering in the President's box at a Clemson football game. Cadets that were members of the Scabbard and Blade, a military fraternity, would take turns working the president's box, good work if you can get it.
Scabbard and Blade is a joint service honor society that unites cadets and midshipmen from all over the country in military excellence. The society strives to better these cadets and midshipmen as future officers and to strengthen the joint service relationship through service to the community and leadership opportunities.
At Clemson, the Scabbard and Blade is the campus organization consisting of the top cadets on the campus enrolled in either Army or Air Force ROTC. Members are selected from cadets who have proven themselves outstanding in their military and scholastic standings.
The purpose of the club is to promote a closer relationship between the cadets and both military departments, and to encourage and foster the essential qualities of efficient officers. Among the activities of the Scabbard and Blade are the annual Military Ball and Military Banquet.
