Second Lieutenant Matthew Coleman Knox graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Citadel on May 5, 2012.

His first salute as a commissioned Air Force officer was to his proud maternal grandfather, Sal Digiglio.

Matthew is the son of former Nesquehoning residents Ted and Lisa Knox and the grandson of Mr. and Mrs. Sal Digiglio and the late John (Kay) and the late Margaret Knox.

In addition to Mr. and Mrs. Sal Digiglio, several aunts and uncles from California, New Jersey and Pennsylvania attended the graduation in South Carolina.
