Every year, Clemson University celebrates Military Appreciation Day by hosting a series of events to recognize Clemson’s rich military tradition and to honor the thousands of Clemson men and women who have served in the armed forces.
Charles K. Cheezem, father and co-developer of Patrick Square with his son, J. Michael Cheezem, was a member of the Clemson University Class of 1944 — the legendary class whose entire membership served in WWII, delaying their graduation to 1949. He is also the namesake of the Cheezem Education Center, home to Clemson’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, which is located just across the Village Green from The Inn at Patrick Square in the community’s Town Center.
“The Patrick Square community is proud to be the home of several veteran residents and our Inn has also frequently welcomed military guests and their families” said Mike Cheezem, CEO of JMC Communities. “We are honored to present this small token of appreciation for their service and sacrifice, as well as to recognize Clemson’s rich military history.”
