Dear GMC Alumni and Friends,

LIEUTENANT GENERAL, U.S. ARMY (RET.)

As we celebrated Georgia Military College’s 139th birthday this year, I asked our fourthand fifth-grade students what we should do next year to celebrate GMC’s 140th birthday, and they told me they wanted to celebrate by leading the formation! They’re excited to be here and eager to experience all GMC has to offer. Seeing our older students at the Prep School and Junior College win state and national championships in activities like literary, theatre, JROTC, and athletics makes them envision big successes in their future, and our faculty and staff are excited and ready to help facilitate those successes. I couldn’t be more proud of our first elementary school classes in 80 years, and I’m excited for the opportunity to share with our young people the treasured values of Georgia Military College. It’s amazing to look back at the last five years and see how much GMC has grown in a short amount of time. Since 2013, we’ve opened five new college campuses in Fayetteville, Dublin, Eastman, Albany, and Zebulon as well as adding three bachelor’s degree programs which have already produced 15 four-year college graduates. We are creating educational opportunity across the state of Georgia, and students are seizing that opportunity. Today, students from 92 percent of Georgia’s 159 counties attend classes at one of our GMC campuses. To create more educational opportunities in our Prep School, we’ve broken ground on an Annex to the Prep School. This Annex will provide students with computer labs, reading and testing rooms, a multipurpose room, a combined cafeteria and auditorium, and a 1,428-square-foot visual arts studio. The Annex will be an invaluable resource where students will discover their own creativity and fall in love with the arts. They’ll discover the endless potential of their own intellect and that hard work and dedication pay great dividends. Your support for GMC has been invaluable! So much of the success of the last few years was made possible by the generosity of our outstanding GMC Family, our wonderful alumni and friends. We’re in the business of creating opportunities and expanding possibilities, and without your support, we could never have achieved so much success in so short a time. We can’t thank you enough for helping to brighten the future and unlock the potential of so many young people.


BUILDING ON VISION 2029 AND THE FOUR BIG IDEAS

GMC President William B. Caldwell IV: The First Five Years – 2013-2018 When retired Army Lt. Gen. William B. Caldwell IV began his tenure in November 2013 as the 21st president of Georgia Military College, he chose to take a measured approach observing, listening, and asking questions before setting forth any future plans. Gathering input and insight from administrators, staff, faculty, and students – his GMC team members – was vital from the start. From the beginning, President Caldwell has subscribed to the ideal that everyone at GMC – faculty, staff, alumni, and friends – can make a difference in students’ lives. The kudos, growth, and progress experienced during President Caldwell’s first five years at the helm of GMC are a

testament to the entire GMC Family.

PRESIDENT’S REPORT 2017-2018


5

Throughout the past five years, President Caldwell and his team have worked tirelessly with faculty and staff to broaden academic, geographic, and financial accessibility for students in Baldwin County, across Georgia, and around the world to take advantage of the character-based educational and military opportunities offered through the Prep School, Junior College, and College Corps of Cadets. President Caldwell’s initial goals helped to shape the foundation of his Vision 2029, named for the year GMC celebrates its sesquicentennial. Vision 2029 is centered on “The Four Big Ideas” that serve as pillars to support and guide strategic initiatives throughout every GMC campus – Contribute to Student Success; Grow Enrollments; Think and Act as One Institution; and Invest in the Future of Georgia Military College. During the past five years, these Four Big Ideas have played – and continue to play – a central role in the forward movement, growth, and progress made by GMC in each of the four areas.

IT BEGINS WITH A VISION


THE FIRST FIVE YEARS

Contribute to Student Success GMC’s No. 1 goal is contributing to student success. By developing pathways for future achievements by students, GMC also provides the foundation for their success. Over the past five years, GMC Junior College has increased its number of graduates by 24 percent. And within GMC Prep School, for nine consecutive years it has had a 100 percent graduation rate. GMC Junior College – ranked No. 1 in Georgia and No. 14 among the Top 50 Best Community Colleges in the U.S. by TheBestSchools.org – has added 18 articulation agreements with four-year institutions, increasing the total number from 29 in 2013 to 47 in 2018, of which 43 guarantee admission for GMC graduates. And with technical college articulation agreements,

College campuses across the state of Georgia – Fayetteville, Dublin, Eastman, Albany, and Zebulon – greatly exceeding the initial goal of adding one campus every three years. As a result, GMC Junior College experienced a 24 percent increase in annual enrollment to 16,317 students. To meet industry needs and student demand, GMC added four Associate degrees – Computer Science, Cybersecurity, Studio Art, and Kinesiology – as well as three Bachelor of Applied Science degrees – Business Management, Supervision & Management, and Supply Chain Management and Logistics. Many of the degrees are offered both as in-seat and online classes, which has also helped contribute to increased enrollment at GMC.

In late 2018, GMC announced the Prep School would be adding the third grade in the fall 2019.

Over the next five years, The Four Big Ideas will continue to guide strategic initiatives and have a positive impact at GMC. In the upcoming years, a further emphasis will be placed on growing the Junior College’s online campus presence and developing additional pathways to attain a BAS degree.

over 100 percent. This increase in support has yielded a growth of 73 percent in the number of gifts. This is a real testament to the alumni and friends of GMC and their belief in what GMC means for the state and the nation. In the end, the real beneficiaries of this broad-based support are the students GMC serves every day.

GMC’s future will also include: growing its international exchange opportunities; adding more Junior College academic programs to meet industry needs, such as in aviation; and continuing to focus on the long-term fiscal health of the entire institution. Then, as now, the primary focus at GMC will continue to be on students’ opportunities, growth, and successes.

NEW EXTENSION CENTERS OPEN To better serve students across the state of Georgia, GMC opened two new extension centers in 2018 – one in Albany, the other in Zebulon. Both locations offer Associate of Art, Associate of Science, and Bachelor of Applied Science degrees. The brand-new GMC extension centers also provide Dual Enrollment to eligible high school students.

> The Albany and Zebulon extension centers make No. 13 and 14 for GMC campuses located across the state. Both locations help support local economies, industries and businesses, and provide exciting career and educational opportunities for GMC students.

ALBANY CAMPUS The GMC-Albany Extension Center began offering classes in January 2018. The center is housed within its partner institution Albany Technical College. GMC students have access to ATC facilities, including a computer lab and student center. GMC-Albany provides select Associate degrees, as well as BAS degrees.

ZEBULON CAMPUS 12 10

The GMC-Zebulon Extension Center opened in January 2018 and began offering classes two months later. It is located inside the same building that houses Zebulon City Hall. GMC-Zebulon is located a short distance from both local high schools, which is ideal for Dual Enrollment students. The center includes four classrooms, two administrative offices, and a computer lab.

FAYETTEVILLE CAMPUS BEGINS PHASE 2 CONSTRUCTION Three years after completing Phase 1 of the GMC-Fayetteville campus, construction began on Phase 2. A groundbreaking ceremony for the 10,808-square-foot facility was held in August 2018 – a year earlier than projected. It adds to the 25,500square-foot GMC academic center built in the first phase. Original plans called for launching the second phase at GMCFayetteville after student enrollment exceeded 500. That goal was met in the first school year with 660 total students enrolled in 2015-2016. Enrollment numbers almost doubled in 20172018 with a total of 1,252 students, including Dual Enrollment. Phase 2 of GMC-Fayetteville is slated to be completed in July 2019 in time for the Fall 1 term. It will include biology and chemistry labs, and eight classrooms, as well as administrative

PRESIDENT’S REPORT 2017-2018

and faculty offices. Phase 1 also includes biology and chemistry labs, as well as a bookstore, computer lab, student success center, library/media center, student lounge with café, academic advising center, and nine classrooms. GMC chose the metro-Atlanta community in Fayette County to provide career-related support to the area’s well-established and growing industries that vary from local healthcare facilities to an international film studio. GMC-Fayetteville is helping students reach the next step in achieving their dreams for a brighter future by attending a four-year institution or start a rewarding career.

PREP SCHOOL ANNEX AND JENKINS HALL RENOVATION At the end of the 2017-2018 school year, GMC Prep School broke ground on construction for a 24,076-square-foot annex to Jenkins Hall. Soon afterward, renovation began on Jenkins Hall. When completed, the two adjacent structures will be connected by an interior hallway. The Prep School Annex will have two computer labs, a testing room, reading

room, multipurpose room, and administrative offices. The annex will also feature a 1,428-square-foot visual arts studio, and a combined cafeteria and auditorium area with stage. The cafetorium opens to an outdoor patio with fireplace. After completion, a renovated Jenkins Hall will return to serving as an elementary school building, housing the Prep School’s third

through sixth grades. The updated facility will include 10 classrooms and a recreational room for P.E. classes. Both GMC Prep School construction projects were the result of increased student enrollment and a strong interest voiced by families. Both are slated to be completed by summer 2019 and ready for students at the start of the 2019-2020 school year.

FOURTH- AND FIFTH-GRADERS RETURN TO GMC PREP SCHOOL The bright, cheery faces of fourth- and fifth-graders were welcomed at GMC Prep School on the first day of school in fall 2018. It was the first time in 80 years that both elementary school grades were offered at GMC. At its April 2017 meeting, the GMC Board of Trustees gave unanimous approval to bring

back the fourth and fifth grades to the Prep School, starting with the 2018-2019 school year. The proposal was made to the Board by Prep School Principal Col. Pam Grant following a high level of interest expressed by the community, alumni members, and current students’ families. In fall 2017, GMC Prep School began taking

applications for fourth- and fifth-grade students. Five faculty positions were created for the two grades, which included one part-time and two full-time new hires. Classes began in August 2018. In the first week of school, the Prep School had all available slots filled with 38 fourth-graders and 42 fifth-graders.

GMC PREP SCHOOL ADDS VISUAL ARTS PROGRAM The GMC Prep School introduced its Visual Arts Program at the start of the 2017-2018 school year. The program offers students art classes and after-school art clubs to creatively express themselves through photography, painting, pottery, printmaking, and other artistic media. Students now have numerous opportunities to explore artistic creation to learn new skills or to refine their talents. High school students interested in pursuing art as a career can also

prepare portfolios filled with their work to use when applying to art school or college. During the Visual Arts Program’s inaugural year, students participated in school, local, and statewide art and photography shows. Among other notable achievements, GMC Prep School students swept first, third, and fourth place in the Junior Division of the 2018 The Plaza Arts Center Photography Show & Exhibition in Eatonton. Students also completed various art-related

special projects as a way to give back to the community through their artwork, which included Heartfelt Portraits of Veterans, Law Enforcement Art Appreciation, and Pinwheels for Peace. GMC and its Board of Trustees have further committed to the Prep School’s Visual Arts Program by incorporating a 1,428-square-foot visual arts studio in the Prep School Annex project, slated to be completed by mid-2019 in time for the 2019-2020 school year.

HIGH ADVENTURE LEADERSHIP PROGRAM Fifteen sixth-grade boys participated in the inaugural year of the GMC Prep School High Adventure Leadership Program, learning and working toward earning merit badges required for an Eagle Scout rank in the Boy Scouts of America. Beginning with the 2017-2018 school year, the High Adventure Leadership Program became one of GMC Prep’s enrichment classes held twice a week during the school day. During class time, students worked on PRESIDENT’S REPORT 2017-2018

earning merit badges and enjoyed meeting guest speakers. Others at GMC Prep and GMC Junior College pitched in to assist students in the program. The Prep School nurse gave them many hands-on lessons in first aid and members of the GMC College Chess Club taught them how to play chess to help the boys earn those two respective merit badges. High Adventure Leadership Program participants were able to join Scouts from

Boy Scouts Troop 87 in Milledgeville on a number of exciting outings, including rappelling Currahee Mountain, canoeing the Okefenokee Swamp, and snorkeling in Key Largo. By the end of the 2017-2018 school year, students had tallied 36 rank advancements and all fifteen had joined Boy Scouts Troop 87. The program was such a success it was opened to sixth- and seventh-grade boys and girls in the 2018-2019 school year.

The first-ever commencement ceremony held by GMC-Eastman also included its first Dual Enrollment graduate – 16-year-old high school junior Lane Barrows. In June 2018, Lane graduated Summa Cum Laude with an Associate degree from GMC one week after she graduated as valedictorian for the Class of 2018 at Dodge County High School.

GMC CONFERS FIRST-EVER BAS DEGREES JUNIOR COLLEGE 16

For the first time in the history of Georgia Military College a four-year degree has been awarded to its graduates. This past academic year, GMC conferred its first-ever Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degrees during the 2017-2018 commencement ceremonies. Fifteen graduates from the Augusta (9), Columbus (1), and Online (5) campuses received a BAS degree, with ten majoring in Supervision and Management and five in Business Management.

The Bachelor of Applied Science program at GMC, which includes degree offerings in Business Management, Supervision and Management, and Supply Chain Management and Logistics, was designed to give technical college graduates with an Associate of Applied Science or Associate of Applied Technology degree the opportunity to advance their education and to further their careers in their specific technical discipline.

Four years after the BAS degree program was approved to be developed, GMC has articulation agreements with 18 technical colleges in Georgia and one in South Carolina. These agreements help facilitate the credit transfer process for students entering one of GMC’s BAS degree programs. During the 2017-2018 academic year, a total of 125 students enrolled in the BAS program, either for in-seat or online classes.

UK INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM PREP SCHOOL The United Kingdom International Exchange Program has provided unique experiences, promoted cross-cultural enrichment, and created lasting friendships between cadets at Georgia Military College Prep School and Royal Hospital School, a coed school in Suffolk, England, established in the early 1700s with a rich naval heritage. The Exchange Program was first offered in the summer before the 2017-2018 school year when a group of ten students and two faculty members from GMC Prep School traveled to Royal Hospital School. PRESIDENT’S REPORT 2017-2018

As with GMC Prep, Royal Hospital School embraces a student cadet program that promotes leadership and building character in a well-rounded learning environment that offers academics, arts, and athletics. GMC Prep School students lived in dorms on the Royal Hospital School campus, where they were immersed in the school’s academic culture and participated in co-curricular activities, including a 48-hour field training exercise with a nighttime ambush attack challenge GMC Prep students aced with flying colors. GMC Prep students also had the chance to play

tourists and expand their cultural horizons by visiting several cities in England, including Oxford and London. Thanks to combined efforts and full support from administrators and faculty at GMC Prep School and Royal Hospital School, the Exchange Program is now in its second year and continues to grow. GMC Prep students spent up to five weeks at Royal Hospital School in summer 2018. And at the start of the 2018-2019 school year, GMC Prep School hosted its first Royal Hospital School cadets.


WOMEN’S GOLF PROGRAM ADDED JUNIOR COLLEGE After years of planning and preparation, Georgia Military College announced during the 2017-2018 academic year that its Junior College Athletic Department would be adding a women’s golf team in fall of 2018.

Recruitment for the first-ever GMC women’s golf team began immediately. The inaugural team for GMC women’s golf hit the links in August 2018 with an all-freshman

roster under the direction of Head Coach Charles “Chuck” Van Horn III. The team competes in Division 1 of the National Junior College Athletic Association, or NJCAA.

‘LEADERSHIP ENGAGEMENT SERIES’ INTRODUCED CORPS OF CADETS The Georgia Military College Corps of Cadets launched its “Leadership Engagement Series” during the 2017-2018 academic year to introduce cadets to alumni and others – military and nonmilitary – who have found academic and career success living by the principles and practices taught at GMC. Once a month, cadets gather in the Goldstein Center for the Performing Arts to listen to speakers, such as GMC Junior College alumni

U.S. Army Brigadier General Jonathan McColumn and Colonel Thomas Hanley. Each guest talks about their professions and how they have applied the principles of leadership, ethics, and character taught at GMC to succeed in life. Afterward, cadets have the opportunity to ask questions and to meet the speaker. The guest speakers who are GMC alumni talk

about their years spent attending the Prep School or Junior College. They serve as real-world role models for current cadets of how the military model used by the GMC Corps of Cadets teaches sound leadership principles, promotes ethics, and builds character that together can serve as a strong foundation for a successful career and help to carry the cadets through life.

CHARACTER-BASED EDUCATION

>>>

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT Georgia Military College places tremendous value in the community it has been a part of since 1879. Throughout the 2017-2018 school year, as well as during the summer months, GMC students, cadets, athletes, faculty, staff, and administrators found a variety of ways to

give back to their neighbors in and around Milledgeville. The following are only a few examples of their gestures of goodwill and selfless service – many of which involved helping military veterans.

GMC Junior College football players were farmers for a day at Comfort Farms. The nonprofit organization provides military veterans who are homeless or need emotional support a place to heal in an agricultural environment and to learn the business of sustainable farming. GMC football players spent the day pressurewashing buildings, working with livestock such as heritage breed hogs, and completing extensive landscape work, which included clearing a large section for a proposed 5K-run trail. GMC Corps of Cadets provided approximately 2,300 hours of community service in the Milledgeville area, including 400 hours by Cadet Isaiah Wilkins alone. Several times each month, cadets volunteered in many ways, to include the Chard Wray Food Pantry, a nonprofit organization that provides groceries to those in need. Junior College cadets also spent time with Georgia War Veterans Home residents, accompanying them during the GMC Prep School Veterans Day Parade and joining them for lunch. They also assisted with an annual yard sale held by a local church.

19

GMC Prep School had a number of cadets take time during their summer break to volunteer for River of Life 2018, a four-day community event that brings local youth and adults together with members of churches from across the state to serve and minister to those in Baldwin and surrounding counties who are less fortunate. Prep School students helped complete improvements and repairs to the exterior of houses, which included building wheelchair ramps, painting, and lawn work. They also visited the Georgia War Veterans Home, volunteered at the Animal Rescue Foundation, and served many local needs. GMC provided a dozen computers to the Collins P. Lee Harrisburg Community Center, benefitting not only the students in the center’s after-school program but also the adults in the community. The twelve computers were the most recent support provided by GMC in its three-year partnership with Habitat for Humanity MilledgevilleBaldwin County to support youth in the Harrisburg community. In addition, GMC provided affordable housing at its Baugh Barracks for almost 200 volunteers who participated in River of Life 2018.

FROM THE

FOUNDATION CHAIRMAN

>>> The Georgia Military College Foundation Inc. exists to ensure that students at GMC have every opportunity to thrive, succeed, and become contributing members of our communities. Through its dedicated faculty and staff, GMC provides a learning environment focused on the success of each student. Within these halls, EVERY student has the opportunity to develop their intellect in an environment that also elevates their character. This focus on character education is what we believe differentiates Georgia Military College from other colleges and universities across our great state and nation.

DUDLEY ROWE

Chairman THE GEORGIA MILITARY COLLEGE FOUNDATION

Once again, I am pleased to report that the Foundation has never been in a stronger position to support this vital mission. Our most recent fiscal year, ending June 30, 2018, saw continued strong growth in operating revenue and overall net assets, and a year-over-year reduction in our total expenses, all while growing the disbursements to the college to provide financial support to the students GMC serves. Through gifts, prudent investment strategies, and strong management and board oversight, the Foundation has experienced unprecedented growth over the last five years. Because of you, the total assets of The GMC Foundation has more than doubled since 2013, from $11.11 million in 2013 to $23.25 million in 2018! An outstanding Foundation Board of Trustees, and dedicated college leadership and a team of development professionals has overseen much of this significant progress. We are grateful for their service. Your investment in this institution truly makes a difference in each student’s future. Thank you for your interest in The Georgia Military College Foundation and for your commitment to Georgia Military College.

‘PROUD TO BE AN AMBASSADOR OF GMC’ As NewDay USA CEO and a father of two, Rob Posner often finds himself reaching back to his years spent as a military school cadet to find inspiration and direction in his life. He knows firsthand about the myriad of experiences and lessons that are unique to attending military schools. He also knows how it can positively impact someone for the rest of their life. Having his father enroll him as a young man at the Fishburne Military School in Virginia was “probably the greatest thing my dad ever did for me,” says Posner, whose father was a military veteran and career U.S. Department of Defense employee. Military school was where Posner studied and worked alongside cadets who were from other countries and cultures. It was where he learned from mentors and how to become a mentor. It was also where he was given opportunities to meet challenges and evolve as a leader. “At our company today, we do what Fishburne taught: Promote young people early and then mentor them as leaders,” Posner says of NewDay USA, a national VA mortgage company dedicated to helping veterans, as well as active-duty military personnel, and their families. As with the cadets at Fishburne Military School, NewDay USA has a diverse workforce with men and women from all over the world.

including at NewDay USA. “You continue to look for mentors,” Posner says. “You continue to see the value of both providing mentorship and seeking mentorship.” When Posner steps onto the Georgia Military College campus in Milledgeville to award NewDay USA Foundation scholarships to GMC Prep School cadets, he takes in the experience both as a company CEO and as a military school alumnus. Someone who has personally experienced the positive impacts attending a military school can have on a career and a lifetime. “It fills me with pride when I see young people who have the opportunity to do great things,” says Posner, following a visit to GMCMilledgeville that included presenting NewDay USA scholarships to cadets and joining them as they used chalk on a brick driveway to write the names of those who died on 9/11 and in the Global War on Terrorism. The NewDay USA Foundation has awarded full-tuition scholarships to high school students at thirteen military schools in eleven states,

NewDay USA scholarships are provided to students who have a parent or guardian who is a fallen, severely wounded, or disabled veteran, or whose family has endured multiple lengthy deployments. Scholarship recipients, or NewDay Scholars, include Gold Star survivors; students who have lost a parent – and beloved mentor at home. By its very nature, a military school, like GMC Prep School, provides cadets with valuable “built-in” mentors, as well as a great education, Posner notes. “We have found that it’s really a big part of the healing of the family knowing that a parent’s sacrifice made an impact on a child’s education,” he says. The sense of family and community found in and outside of the classroom at GMC Prep School, which includes everyone from President William B. Caldwell to the youngest cadets, provides further leadership and support for NewDay Scholars. “That’s what makes this school so special,” Posner says. In January 2019, the NewDay USA Foundation will add a scholarship that will only be offered to students accepted to attend GMC Prep School. The new scholarship will be awarded to children whose parent or guardian has spent time away from home serving in the Global War on Terrorism. It will cover the full cost of tuition and up to $7,500 to go toward the cost of moving and relocating to Milledgeville.

Posner uses those same leadership and mentor principles he was taught in military school at home to teach and encourage his young son and daughter. He gives them responsibilities and challenges to help them grow in character and to build their confidence. “I show them I believe in them,” Posner says. While attending military school, Posner forged lifelong bonds with leaders and mentors. He has gone on to find great mentors in his professional life, too,

which includes thirteen scholarships given to GMC Prep School cadets since 2016. Each scholarship is given in honor of the person who provided Rob Posner the scholarship funds he needed to attend military school – his father, Allan Posner.

“What GMC is doing is special. I am proud to be an ambassador of GMC,” Posner says. “I tell people about it wherever I go. The whole NewDay USA team believes in it.”

PRESIDENT’S REPORT 2017-2018

Honorary Alumna Inez Hawkins | GMC Inez L. Hawkins Family Scholarship There are two major loves in Inez Hawkins’ life – her family and Georgia Military College. Through the Inez L. Hawkins Family Scholarship established in 2012, she has found a way to graciously and generously give back to both. Hawkins holds a special place in her heart for GMC for several reasons. It is where she attended first through seventh grades at then-GMC Grammar. It is where she worked for eighteen years, including as biology teacher, Science Department Chairperson, and vice president for development. It is also where a number of Hawkins’ family members, including her brother and son, attended school. In the early 2000s, Hawkins joined the GMC Foundation Board, where she became familiar with the scholarship funding options available even with modest contributions. For her, establishing the Inez L. Hawkins Family Scholarship was an easy and meaningful decision. “I wanted to do something to honor the ones who are still living and memorialize those who had died,” Hawkins

says, referring to her family. “And I wanted to do it in a way that would impact people positively for years to come.” Each year, the Inez L. Hawkins Family Scholarship provides tuition assistance for a GMC Prep School or Junior College student who is struggling academically but has a strong character and the heart to succeed. “There’s very little help for ‘C’ and ‘D’ students who show potential,” says Hawkins, who, as a teacher, knew firsthand about students with average GPAs who “show promise and possess the qualities we extol at GMC.” By establishing the need-based scholarship through her estate, Hawkins ensures that the Inez L. Hawkins Family Scholarship will continue to provide tuition assistance for GMC students in perpetuity. “You don’t have to be wealthy or have great sums of money to help make a difference in people’s lives,” Hawkins says.

‘A WAY OF HONORING HIM’ Since enrolling at Georgia Military College Prep School in sixth grade, senior cadet Caroline Wood has filled her days with academic studies and extracurricular activities. Through the years, when Wood wasn’t hitting the books, you could find her cheering the football team, running track, or performing on stage. From sixth through ninth grades, Wood competed on the GMC Prep School track and field team, taking home a state championship trophy in her ninth-grade year. She was a member of the football cheerleading squad from sixth through eleventh grades. Since becoming a high school senior, however, Wood has chosen to focus her extracurricular time on theatre and acting. Wood has been active with theater and auditioning for plays since ninth grade when she was cast for her first-ever role, landing a part in the GMC Prep School production of the Broadway musical classic “Guys and Dolls,” which is still her favorite. “Everybody felt like family,” she recalls of her initial theatrical experience. “And we ended up winning state – which I didn’t think was a possibility.” At the start of her sophomore year, Wood was awarded a scholarship from the NewDay USA Foundation that fully covered the cost of her

tuition through twelfth grade. The generous gift ensures Wood is able to finish her high school years at GMC Prep School, continue to express her thespian side, and graduate with the Class of 2019. NewDay USA is a VA mortgage lender with a concerted focus on assisting active-duty military personnel, veterans, and their families. Since 2013, the NewDay USA Foundation has awarded scholarships to military high school students based on a certain performance criteria for the student and the distinguished military service of a parent or guardian, which includes fallen soldiers and Gold Star families like the Woods. The late Major Roy Wood Sr. was a member of the Army National Guard Special Forces Group, who died in 2004 while serving in Afghanistan. The NewDay USA Foundation scholarship holds special meaning for Caroline Wood. “It was a way of honoring him,” she says of her father. “And it was nice to see people remember him after that long.” Upon graduation from GMC Prep School, Wood plans to attend Georgia College & State University where she wants to major in nursing. “I’ve always wanted to help others and that was just one way,” Wood says.

‘I BELIEVE IN THE MISSION OF GMC’

Prep/JC Alumnus Dr. John Ferguson | GMC GMC Supporter/Foundation Executive Committee Shortly after establishing his successful orthodontist practice in Milledgeville in the early 1970s, Dr. John Ferguson (HS ’61, JC ’63) began his now decades-long tradition of generously giving of his time and treasure to support his beloved alma mater Georgia Military College. He still recalls walking to the GMC campus on a New Year’s Eve to deliver his first of many checks. “I thought GMC was the best place to put it, other than my church,” Ferguson said of his initial contributions. “I don’t think there’s been a year when I haven’t given something. I believe in the mission of GMC and what it does for our students.” GMC has been a significant part of Ferguson’s family since before he was born. His father, John Luther Ferguson, became dean at GMC in July 1943, less than four months before John Ferguson was born. Both John Ferguson and his younger brother, David Ferguson, attended the then allboys GMC Prep School, where their father taught science courses. John Ferguson’s daughter, Dr. Emily Ferguson May, is also a GMC Prep School alumna. Although Ferguson was accepted at Emory University, he chose to attend college at GMC, then spend a year at the University of Georgia before starting at Emory College. Not long after he returned to Milledgeville in 1972, after spending two years in the U.S. Army that included a tour of duty in Vietnam and returning to Emory

University to complete an orthodontic residency, Ferguson began his first of many years serving as GMC Alumni Association president. He currently serves as first vice chairman for the GMC Foundation Executive Committee, and also sits on the Development and Finance committees. The same qualities Ferguson appreciated most at GMC as a student and as a parent of a student – superior academics, an emphasis on discipline, and character-based education – are the exact same ones he is passionate about supporting through his contributions. And why he and his wife, Janet Pennington Ferguson, continue to give generously to GMC in any way they can. Over the years, the Fergusons have made a variety of monetary contributions to GMC, including to unrestricted funds to be used wherever operational needs are the greatest, as well as toward restricted funds that provide student scholarships to ensure children from low-income families are able to attend GMC Prep School or Junior College. More than 50 years after he attended GMC, Ferguson can still vividly recall many fond memories. He plans to continue giving to restricted and unrestricted projects at GMC, such as the performing arts, fiscal improvements, and scholarships. Those future donations will add to the many ways Ferguson has continued to give back to GMC to ensure current and future students can create their own special memories and successful careers.

‘PHENOMENAL LEADERSHIP TRAINING’ At the age of 8, Charlie Moore (HS ’03) knew exactly what he wanted to do with his life. Moore’s vision for his future had not one, but two goals – join the military and become a physician. He took full advantage of the JROTC activities, camps, training, and leadership opportunities offered at Georgia Military College Prep School. As a GMC Prep School cadet, Moore highly revered the eighthand twelfth-grade battalion commanders, finding himself filling those lofty shoes in his senior year. His duties as high school battalion commander provided him “phenomenal leadership training you don’t normally get at that age,” Moore says. It was his first opportunity to learn and hone his skills as a leader tasked with guiding and motivating his peers. In his role as high school battalion commander, Moore had the responsibility of leading hundreds of cadets during drills, ceremonies, morning formations, parades, and

training. He also worked with the GMC Prep School JROTC staff to handle operational duties and administrative tasks. Attending GMC Prep School and serving as high school battalion commander instilled in Moore the work ethic, character, interpersonal skills, and training he needed to not only achieve his two life goals but to excel in his current position as Medical Director of the Regimental Special Troops Battalion of the 75th Ranger Regiment at Fort Benning. Moore completed his bachelor’s and medical degrees at Mercer University on a full ROTC scholarship. He now serves as a Major in the U.S. Army, where his responsibilities include handling medical and administrative duties at the Ranger Consolidated Medical Clinic at Fort Benning, training medics, providing medical care, and supporting combat operations during deployments as a physician for Ranger units.

‘A QUALITY, AFFORDABLE EDUCATION’

Robins Financial Credit Union

Robins Financial Credit Union Scholarship RFCU SVP/Chief Administrative Officer, Dee Dee Côté, 2017-18 scholarship recipient Taran Bennyhoff, and GMC Warner Robins Executive Director, Ted Ramsdell.

For more than 60 years Robins Financial Credit Union has provided financial services to its members and their families. Despite the notfor-profit financial cooperative’s tremendous growth, with 21 branch locations now serving 35 counties and over 200,000 members, supporting its hometown of Warner Robins remains a top priority. Providing need-based scholarships for students at the Georgia Military College Warner Robins campus is one way Robins Financial Credit Union has chosen to give back to the local community. Since 2015, Robins Financial Credit Union has awarded a GMC-Warner Robins student a $4,000 scholarship to help cover the cost of tuition for a year. “GMC offers a quality, affordable education for kids out of high school,” says Robins Financial Credit Union President and CEO John Rhea, who has been quite impressed with the GMC-Warner Robins recipients chosen and fully plans to continue the scholarship program. The 2017-2018 academic year Robins Financial Credit Union scholarship recipient was sophomore Taran Bennyhoff, who initially enrolled at GMC-Warner Robins as a Dual Enrollment student. He graduated from high school in his junior year, while finishing his freshman year at GMC at the same time. Bennyhoff graduated from GMC-Warner Robins in spring 2018 with a 3.86 GPA and

two Associate of Arts degrees – one in Business Administration and the other in History, which is his favorite subject. To be eligible for the Robins Financial Credit Union scholarship an applicant must be a GMC-Warner Robins full-time student with at least a 2.0 GPA. They must also demonstrate a financial need and be a member of the credit union. Every year, dozens of students apply for the scholarship, GMC-Warner Robins Executive Director, Ted Ramsdell says, with the $4,000 being awarded to the person who has the greatest financial need. Each Robins Financial Credit Union $4,000 scholarship is divided up into $1,000 payments over four quarters, starting with the Fall 1 term. The scholarship funds are applied toward tuition costs along with any financial aid the recipient receives, which means students are able to attend GMC-Warner Robins at absolutely no cost to them. Thanks to the Robins Financial Credit Union scholarship, Bennyhoff was able to attend his sophomore year tuition-free and complete the next step toward earning his Bachelor of Science degree in Business by age 19. From there, Bennyhoff plans to become an entrepreneur. “I hope to fulfill my dream of owning and opening my own restaurant,” he says. “Later, I hope to open more restaurants and hotels.”

IS YOUR NAME MISSING? The Honor Roll of Donors contains names of individuals who have made gifts to Georgia Military College that were processed through The GMC Foundation between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018. There could be several reasons that your name does not appear in what you believe to be the appropriate giving level—or not appear at all. 1. You made your gift either before July 1, 2017, or after June 30, 2018. 2. You gave more during this period than you realize: Your name may be in the next giving level. 3. You made a pledge instead of an outright gift. If you made a pledge between July 1, 2017, and June 30, 2018, but chose to begin fulfilling it after June 30, 2018, your name will be listed in the 2018-2019 Honor Roll of Donors. Contact the Office of Institutional Development if we omitted your name in error, or if you have questions or corrections: 201 E. Greene Street, Milledgeville, GA 31061.
