The 2019 – 2020 Recipients of the Clemson Corps Keeping the Tradition Alive Award

Army ROTC Cadet Eric Brown, Air Force ROTC Cadet Jacob Siebert and student veteran Victoria Graham were this academic year’s recipients of the Chalmers R. Carr and Jeannette D. Carr Keeping the Tradition Alive Award.

The endowment was created by retired U.S. Air Force Brig. Gen. Chalmers ’60 and Jeannette Carr to recognize an Army ROTC cadet, an Air Force ROTC cadet and an undergraduate student veteran for their outstanding efforts and contributions in promoting Clemson’s rich and distinguished military heritage and history.

This year’s Army ROTC cadet recipient is Eric Brown of Greenville. Cadet Brown distinguished himself in promoting Clemson’s military heritage during his four years at Clemson through his leadership in Clemson’s Ranger Club, Tiger Platoon, and Scabbard and Blade Society. 2nd Lt. Brown will continue his Army career as an infantry officer at Fort Benning, Georgia.

This year’s Air Force ROTC cadet recipient is Jacob Siebert of Rock Hill, South Carolina. Cadet Siebert was instrumental in the establishment of the Clemson Student Military Council. He was a leader in promoting the Annual Walk for Veterans, Military Appreciation Day and the POW/MIA Ceremony. 2nd Lt. Siebert will continue his Air Force career as a contracting officer at Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson in Anchorage, Alaska.

Finally, this year’s student veteran recipient is Victoria Graham of Puckett, Mississippi. Graham represents the U.S. Navy.

Since arriving at Clemson in 2018, Graham has been instrumental in the development of the Student Veteran Center and the Student Military Council, where she served as vice president. She also served as treasurer and president of the Clemson Student Veterans Association. Graham promoted Clemson’s military heritage through presentations to Clemson faculty, students and civilian organizations about veteran affairs. Graham will pursue a graduate degree in Florida.

In regard to this year’s recipients, Brig. Gen. Hap Carr ’60 said, “I could not be any prouder in these individuals. Their dedication, energy and accomplishments truly exhibit the values of the Keeping the Tradition Alive Award.”

Each recipient received a $1,000 check, a Keeping the Tradition Alive challenge coin and their names engraved on permanent plaques displayed in the Army and Air Force ROTC offices and in the Clemson Student Veteran Center.

Clemson Ring Moments Video Submission

Clemson needs your help!

We are creating a very special video for the ring ceremony that highlights the moments our Alumni have celebrated while wearing their Clemson ring.

We need your help. If you have video or photos of celebrations that you would like to share with the world, we would love to see them and perhaps use them on the video!

We’re currently compiling all of the best of the best content to show on the video.

Here’s what we are looking for:

  • Weddings
  • Anniversaries
  • Birthdays
  • Vacations
  • Special moments in your life
  • Clemson events
  • Generations of Clemson graduates with rings

We prefer scenes where the people in the video are prominently wearing their Clemson ring.

It can be as rough and “amateurish” as possible. The only thing we ask is that all videos be horizontal.

Please upload the highest resolution possible with no compression or resizing. Complete the form below to submit your Clemson Ring Moments Videos!
