Justin Pearson, Executive Director of Enrollment Management


I am originally from Hempstead, NY but quickly relocated as a child to Summerville, SC. I graduated from Summerville High School in 1987 and enrolled at The Citadel in the SC Corps of Cadets. After graduating from The Citadel in 1991 with a BS in Business, I served in business for a few years before returning to my Alma Mater in the office of admissions.

I have worked at The Citadel and SC State University in various senior leadership positions. During those years, I have earned a Masters Degree, Graduate Certificate in Student Affairs along with 30 additional credit hours in graduate work. I have also served as an adjunct professor at The Citadel teaching Citadel 101 and Senior Leadership courses in The Department of Leadership Studies.

I have been married for 25 years and we have two adult sons. My favorite phrase is Bloom Where You Are Planted! During my leisure time, I enjoy reading leadership and finance books. I am also very active in my church in Summerville.
