WILLIAM B. CALDWELL IV
LIEUTENANT GENERAL, U.S. ARMY (RET.)
The true character of a person or an institution shines through at a moment’s notice during challenging times. No thought has to be given to doing the right thing. Character comes naturally. It’s the hallmark of a true leader. Challenging times also present a chance to reflect on what is most important and how to move forward. Our GMC Family has been a beacon of light during the COVID-19 storm in 2020. Drawing upon our core values of “Duty, Honor, Country,” the GMC Prep School, Junior College, and our Corps of Cadets faculty and staff turned challenges into opportunities for our students and cadets. They embodied our motto of “Character Above All” to keep the education of students and the health of everyone as top priorities during the pandemic. Our students and cadets rose to the occasion as well, with many of them continuing to be servant-leaders in their communities. The public launch of Be The One: The Campaign for Georgia Military College in the fall of 2020 comes at an ideal and opportune time for us. It is an unprecedented campaign – the largest in the history of our institution – coming on the heels of an unprecedented year. Be The One builds on the support of our generous donors who have contributed more than $11.4 million since 2017. The goal is to raise over $3.5 million more by 2024 for a total of $15 million. Contributions to Be The One will go to support our students and cadets in the Prep School, Junior College, and Corps of Cadets through scholarships, visual arts, performing arts, athletics, exceptional curriculums, and stateof-the-art facilities. The Campaign focuses on four student-centric key areas: to give hope, provide opportunity, instill excellence, and develop leadership. Investing in our students and cadets now helps to ensure we can continue to endure trying times without losing sight of our mission to produce educated citizens and contributing members of society. It helps to provide the means to build a solid future upon our solid foundation based on those three core values we have traditionally held for 141 years, “Duty — Honor — Country.”
We are excited to announce the public launch of Be The One: The Campaign for Georgia Military College a $15 million comprehensive fundraising campaign. It is our honor to serve as co-chairs of the largest campaign in the history of our school. During the quiet phase, our donors have contributed $11,480,742. This is an amazing display of support and growth by our GMC community to ensure a strong future for the institution. Our goal is to raise an additional $3,519,258 through gifts, pledges, and special initiatives, by the year 2024. Be The One: The Campaign for Georgia Military College will impact GMC in a way that gives our current and future students more tools to succeed in our Preparatory School, our Corps of Cadets, and all of our college campuses across the state of Georgia. Since July 1, 2017 the total value of our endowment has grown from $15,661,710 to $20,592,128 through June 30, 2020. We believe that your support will be a tribute to the positive impact GMC has made to many people’s lives. Most importantly, it is a testament to the belief that affordable, accessible, quality education is a critical element of thriving communities. Through publicly launching this campaign, we look forward to inspiring an even greater movement of generosity. We ask you to Be The One to join us!

Over the past two years, we have asked the GMC family to share what Georgia Military College means to them through our Annual Fund, “One Word. One Gift.” The words they shared captured the essence of GMC and have inspired us to dream about the greater impact this campaign can have on thousands of Preparatory and College students across the state and nation.

BE THE ONE TO GIVE HOPE THROUGH STUDENT SCHOLARSHIPS Hope begins here at Georgia Military College. We believe in equipping and enabling students with tools for success, and for some that requires scholarships. GMC offers scholarship assistance for our Preparatory and College students, as well as our Corps of Cadets to build hope for a brighter future. During 2019-2020, our Foundation awarded
over $199,982 endowed and $174,125 annual scholarships to over 550 of students in need. It is our hope to help even more students receive the gift of a GMC education. Your support of an academic scholarship opens the door to deserving students who have the drive, but not the financial resources, to reach for their educational dreams.
“GMC has helped me with my behavior and grades. I am learning the importance of treating people kindly, motivating people, and being helpful. I am working hard to get good grades so I can get into a good college, get a job, and have a nice life. GMC has improved me in everything that helps right now and gives me hope for the future.”

BE THE ONE TO PROVIDE OPPORTUNITY THROUGH STUDENT ENRICHMENT, ATHLETICS, AND THE FINE ARTS Here is where opportunity is provided. We believe in the importance of providing unique opportunities for students to discover their talents and explore their interests. Many vital programs are dependent on the support of donors like you who realize the value of developing well-rounded students. Georgia Military College Preparatory School proudly offers nearly 40 opportunities for students to develop their passions. GMC Prep School continues to develop a robust fine arts program which includes performing and visual arts for elementary,
middle, and high school students. More than 25 opportunities for enrichment, such as the Men’s Cadet Glee Club and Ethics Bowl offer ways for college students to hone interests and fuel their passions. Georgia Military College also offers nine intercollegiate athletic programs, the most recent being women’s golf. Our donors generously funded specific opportunities for student enrichment, athletics, and the fine arts in the amount of $210,501 during the 2019-2020 school year.
“I have embraced every opportunity GMC has provided to me, and I am a better student, leader, and athlete because of it. From the classroom, to the Raiders’ course, to the basketball court, the discipline, teamwork, and skills I have learned at GMC will ensure my future success.”

BE THE ONE TO INSTILL EXCELLENCE IN EVERY STUDENT, ON EVERY CAMPUS Here is where excellence is instilled. Since 1879, GMC has embraced a tradition of excellence, infusing the virtues of “duty, honor, country” and “character above all” into everything we do. We believe our students deserve devoted faculty, enriching learning experiences, and state-of-theart facilities. To this end, facility enhancements were prioritized this year for our elementary school and the Fayetteville campus. The college added four new degree programs: AAS in Allied Health,
AAS in Technical Studies, BAS in Healthcare Management, and BAS in Homeland Security and Emergency Management. Above all, we wish to provide an excellent educational experience as well as opportunities to equip each of our students with the tools for success. By partnering with Georgia Military College with your financial support, you play an active role in furthering excellence within our curriculum and throughout our facilities.
“Excellence is something we strive for at GMC. It’s embedded in everything we do. Excellence is an expectation and something that is truly visible on our beautiful campus.”

BE THE ONE TO DEVELOP LEADERSHIP FOR THE NEXT GENERATION Here is where leadership is developed. GMC develops students into effective servant leaders and engaged citizens. Programs such as JROTC, SROTC, and Ethics Across the Curriculum allow our students to cultivate leadership skills which are crucial to their future. We believe the virtues of character, integrity, and civility will serve as guiding principles for the rest of our students’ lives. The GMC Prep School JROTC and the Corps of Cadets SROTC programs provide daily leadership opportunities through positions of increasing responsibility and rank structure designed to
maximize leadership development in every student. GMC believes a truly educated person shows compassion and respect for others, and recognizes a corporate responsibility to improve the human condition. Our curriculum has an emphasis on community service; hundreds of students have been honored with the Distinguished Order of the Servant Leader Award for completing 100 hours of community service within one year. With your leadership gift, we will be able to raise up the next generation of leaders for our communities, state and nation.
“Leadership is the art of mastering selfless service, putting the needs of others before yourself. Leaders help others to see the greatness within themselves and their unlimited potential. Leaders encourage others to embrace true confidence to let their light shine in the midst of darkness.”

PLANNED GIVING impacts lives in a positive and lasting way.
Through planned giving, donors receive assistance in establishing gifts that will help Georgia Military College for generations to come. Planned gifts can be arranged in a number of ways, including wills, trusts, insurance and gifts of property. With proper planning, you can make wonderful gifts in support of the College while maintaining or even improving your financial status. It is actually possible to make gifts while increasing income for yourself and/or loved ones, providing for inheritances, and reducing or eliminating income, gift and estate taxes. Planned gifts are gift arrangements that have specific tax advantages and often include lifetime income to a beneficiary or beneficiaries named by the donor. Donor benefits could include income, estate and capital gains tax savings; retention of income or increased income; and the potential to make a larger gift to the GMC Foundation compared to making an outright gift or pledge while living.
Make your gift online today.

There are many ways to support. Gifts may be unrestricted in use, or you may specify that your gift be targeted to a particular program or purpose. However you choose to support GMC, you will be embarking on a partnership with an institution that, through development of both the intellect and the character of its students, impacts lives in positive and lasting ways. There are almost as many ways of giving as there are programs, projects and priorities of the College that need your support.
Endowed Gift Opportunities A gift for endowment demonstrated farsighted commitment to Georgia Military College. Endowments are permanent funds, maintained in perpetuity by the GMC Foundation, from which only a portion of the annual investment return is used for the purpose intended by the donor. The rest of the investment yield is returned to the principal. Thus, over the years, the fund can grow with the goal of keeping pace with inflation. Such endowments, which typically bear the name of the donor or donors, reflect your interests and serve as an enduring testament to your generosity. Additional gifts may be made to the fund to increase the principal and thereby increase the annual investment income. Endowments represent rewarding gift opportunities because they offer the donor the satisfaction of knowing that his or her gift will continue working for future generations.
The Basics of Establishing an Endowment • An endowed fund may be established with a contribution in the form of cash, appreciated securities or other charitable gifts such as a bequest.
Unrestricted When you do not restrict the use of your gift, you allow flexibility in meeting needs. These funds are managed prudently and applied where they will be most beneficial to meet a variety of current needs.
Programs & Services Gifts may be designated to any of the wide variety of programs and services offered by Georgia Military College. Perhaps there is a particular area, such as library enrichment, technology, athletics, or an academic department in which you have an interest. Such gifts will be applied in their entirety to the area of your designation.
• It may be established with either a single gift of $25,000 or a gift of at least $5,000 and a pledge of the remaining $20,000 over a period of up to five years. • The fund is invested by the GMC Foundation, which serves as a steward of the endowed funds. The Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization. Contributions are taxdeductible as allowed by law.
Purposes of Endowed Funds • An endowed gift offers the opportunity for donors to have their names, or the name of a loved one, linked to an area in which they have a special interest, creating a legacy for years to come. • A named endowment can provide an opportunity for an academic department or an athletic program to grow and excel. • A named endowment can provide a scholarship to aid deserving students year after year.
Endowment Reporting As a donor who has established an endowment, you will receive an annual report from the GMC Foundation on the financial status of the fund, including earnings and distributions.
Oak Leaf Society The Oak Leaf Society recognizes alumni and friends who have included the GMC Foundation in their estate plans. Their gifts for the College’s future are made through wills, trusts and charitable gift annuities, or by naming the GMC Foundation as the beneficiary of life insurance policies, retirement fund accounts, or other financial instruments. The generosity of these legacy donors ensures that the mission of Georgia Military College will continue to be fulfilled for years to come. Members of the Oak Leaf Society are invited to be special guests at the President’s Gala, hosted annually by the President of Georgia Military College.
Special Initiatives If you choose to, you may designate your financial assistance to any of several initiatives undertaken by the Foundation through partnering with the school’s leadership to identify special priorities for giving.

PREPARATORY SCHOOL Elementary Programs Added Within a year of bringing back the third, fourth, and fifth grades, GMC Prep School introduced several new programs specifically for the youngest students in visual arts, athletics, and afterschool care.
Students who participate in the Prep School afterschool program are given a snack, and have opportunities to complete their homework and participate in various activities, such as art and games, as well as outdoor playtime.
Dual Enrollment Record
At the start of the 2019-2020 school year, the Prep School visual arts program was expanded to include the three newly added elementary grades. Through the creation of art, students were also able to learn about other topics and to use their researching, reading, writing, and math skills.
A record number of GMC Prep School students participated in the Dual Enrollment Program during the 2019-2020 school year, taking college classes at the GMC-Milledgeville campus as a high school student to work toward also earning an associate degree. A total of 149 Prep School students – 81% of seniors, 70% of juniors, and 57% of sophomores – attended junior college classes in the 2019 Fall Term.
When remote learning began in March 2020 due to COVID-19, students were given an “art-to-go” bag filled with materials needed to complete several art projects at home. Toward the end of the school year, a website was created to exhibit a virtual art show of students’ work.
Junior Bulldogs The Junior Bulldogs program was established to provide Prep School students in elementary grades with team-based physical activities that teach them how to play a sport, as well as sportsmanship and ethics. The teams were enthusiastically supported by parents and the GMC Family. More than two-thirds of Prep School students in third, fourth, and fifth grades took part in the inaugural year of the Junior Bulldogs, participating in football, basketball, cross-country, and cheerleading. The new elementary grade-level athletics program kicked off in fall 2019.
Afterschool Program When in-seat classes were held during the 2019-2020 school year, Prep School students in third through fifth grades had the opportunity to participate in an afterschool program first introduced in February 2019. The afterschool program offers regular enrollment as well as a daily drop-in option, giving parents several childcare choices to fit their needs. An average of 35 students – almost one-fourth of elementary school enrollment – participated in the program.
GEORGIA MILITARY CO LLEGE
Seven members of the Class of 2020 were able to graduate with their high school diplomas from GMC Prep School and receive an associate degree from GMC Junior College at the same time, thanks to the Dual Enrollment Program. Eighty percent – 43 out of 54 – members of the Class of 2020 participated in Dual Enrollment at some point from their sophomore to senior year, taking a combined total of 430 college classes and earning more than 21,450 credit hours.
Historic Preservation Award In April 2020, Georgia Military College received a 2020 Excellence in Rehabilitation Award from The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation in recognition of the College’s dedication to restoring Jenkins Hall to its former architectural glory. Excellence in Rehabilitation is awarded to projects that make modern use of a building through repairs, alterations, or additions while also preserving features – such as the solid heart pine classroom doors topped by classic transom windows at Jenkins Hall – that retain and showcase its historic value. GMC and its architect worked with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Historic Preservation Division to determine the proper steps needed to completely
restore Jenkins Hall. The historic structure returned to its original ten-classroom floor plan and exterior appearance just as it had when it first opened in 1927 as GMC Grammar School. Jenkins Hall now houses third, fourth, and fifth grades for GMC Prep School. It reopened in fall 2019 with 150 eager elementary students ready to fill the modernly outfitted, state-of-the-art classrooms. The basement of Jenkins Hall now serves as an IT Annex with offices and work areas for IT employees.
Giving Back Helping out others in the community is one way GMC Prep School students build character that will serve them well throughout their lives. Through community service and community projects students find ways to make a difference in peoples’ lives. In 2019, the Prep School Raiders team hosted a fundraiser for “Wreaths Across America,” raising more than $4,600 to purchase over 300 wreaths to be placed on veterans’ gravesites at the Georgia Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Milledgeville, Georgia. During their holiday school break in December, dozens of Prep School Raiders and their classmates took the time to volunteer on National Wreaths Across America Day to help respectfully place those hundreds of purchased wreaths on row after row of gravesites at the cemetery. Prep School students who volunteer to give their time and talents to serve others through community service for 100 or more hours within a calendar year receive the Distinguished Order of the Servant Leader Award medal and certificate. More than a dozen students in seventh through twelfth grades were recognized with the award in 2020, with each tallying a total number of community service time that ranged from 100 hours to 600 hours.

JUNIOR COLLEGE Added Degree Programs Help Spur Enrollment Increase In 2019, GMC Junior College was ranked by The Chronicle of Higher Education as a Top 20 Fastest Growing Associate and Baccalaureate Associate College in the nation – and No. 1 in Georgia. Enrollment growth has been driven, in part, thanks to a concerted effort to expand degree programs, with two associate and one bachelor of applied science degrees added in the 2020-2021 academic year. The three newly introduced degree programs offered by GMC include: an Associate of Applied Science in Allied Health, an Associate of Applied Science in Technical Studies, and a Bachelor of Applied Science in Healthcare Management. In addition, a Bachelor of Applied Science in Homeland Security and Emergency Management degree program is pending approval in 2021 from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, or SACSCOC, before becoming the fifth BAS degree offered at GMC. “Additional degree programs allow GMC students to continue to pursue associate-level degrees in relevant fields, as well as provide additional pathways for them to obtain their four-year degree through GMC’s Bachelor of Applied Science degree programs,” GMC Associate Chief Academic Officer, Dr. Derek Stone, said. The Associate of Applied Science in Allied Health degree provides GMC students who wish to take the next step in their higher education a direct route into the Bachelor of Applied Science in Healthcare Management degree program without the worry of losing credit hours or headache of having to repeat courses. This BAS program is also ideal for those who have completed a health-related applied science degree at a technical college and wish to pursue a four-year degree. The Associate of Applied Science in Technical Studies is geared toward students who have previous credits taken at a technical college or while serving in the military. It gives them the option to segue smoothly into one of the
GEORGIA MILITARY CO LLEGE
Bachelor of Applied Science degree programs offered by GMC to also obtain a four-year degree. Students who graduate with an Associate of Applied Science in Criminal Justice at GMC can take advantage of the Bachelor of Applied Science in Homeland Security and Emergency Management after it is approved by SACSCOC to further their personal education and professional careers. The Bachelor of Applied Science degree option often attracts nontraditional students who are already working in their chosen career field and want to move into a supervisory or management position. The ease of transitioning from associate to bachelor’s degree and the flexibility of classes offered at GMC make obtaining a four-year degree a reality for more students. In turn, earning an advanced undergraduate degree for in-demand industries and career fields provides GMC graduates more opportunities for promotions and greater job security with current and future employers. “We continue to explore other degree programs that offer similar opportunities to AAS graduates in other career fields,” GMC Division Chair of Bachelor of Applied Science Degree Program, Dr. Tianna Marynell, said.
Education Bridge Program The Georgia Military College-Augusta University Bridge Program provides GMC Elementary Education and Middle Grades Education associate degree graduates with a direct pathway into the AU bachelor-level teacher education program. The intercollegiate partnership marks the 50th articulation agreement with a fouryear institution for GMC; but, it is the first specifically geared toward supporting education majors. As of the 2020-2021 academic year, any GMC Elementary Education or Middle Grades Education graduate who meets certain criteria is eligible for admission to the AU College of Education. The Bridge Program streamlines the transfer process for Elementary and Middle Grades Education graduates from GMC to the AU College of Education, where they enter as
juniors. It also allows them to transfer the maximum number of credit hours and avoid having to repeat classes. GMC students constitute one of the largest groups of applicants to the AU College of Education. Making the transfer process easier for GMC students now means increasing the number of highly qualified teachers in state school systems for the future. It also means greater educational and professional opportunities for GMC students.
Madison Campus Expansion The GMC-Madison campus has added a new facility – the GMC-Madison Pearl- Burney Annex – located a short distance from its main location in downtown Madison. The Annex adds six spacious classrooms for GMC students, with an option to add eight more in the future, if needed. The Annex is thanks to a partnership the GMC-Madison campus has with the Downtown Development Authority, city of Madison, and county school system officials. The newly restored facility doubles the classroom space available for GMC students. The GMC-Madison Pearl-Burney Annex opened for classes in the 2020 Fall 1 Term. It has been used to accommodate local high school students who participate in the GMC Dual Enrollment Program, which averages 100 students a year at GMC-Madison. The second term after the Annex opened, the number of dual enrollment courses offered there tripled from two to six. The GMC-Madison Pearl-Burney Annex is named after former all-Black schools located in the area, which includes the building where the Annex is housed. More recently, the historic structure served as the county middle school and still holds a special place in the community’s heart. “I am so glad that GMC will have a part in preserving the historic legacy of the PearlBurney Annex, and especially that the site will be used for educational purposes,” GMC-Madison Extension Center Director, Leigh Aldhizer, said. “This expansion is the perfect way to grow our campus.”

CORPS OF CADETS Record Numbers of Female Cadets The GMC Junior College Corps of Cadets had a record number of female cadets report at the beginning of the Fall Term for the 2020-2021 academic year – both in terms of the overall number, as well as for its Service Academy Preparatory Program in particular. The increased number of female cadets choosing to enroll in one of the Corps of Cadets’ programs to start or to advance their military career reflects a trend seen across the Armed Forces. More options are now available for women in areas once only offered to men, such as in infantry, armor, and artillery. “From a military perspective, you’ve created a career path and different opportunities for females to explore that weren’t historically open to them,” GMC Corps of Cadets Commandant Steve Pitt said. In the past four years, the overall percentage of female cadets within all of the GMC Corps of Cadets programs combined has grown from 19% to 31%. The greatest concentration of female cadets is in the Service Academy Preparatory Program, where more than half – 58% – of the cadets are female. Among the reasons why the women chose GMC Corps of Cadets includes: the five-day physical training regimen; the opportunity to be a cadet-athlete; a recommendation made by a friend or family member who is a Corps alum; and the amount of time spent with them during the recruiting process. Madisen Campbell, an Air Force Academy scholar whose goal is to become a fighter pilot, chose the GMC Corps of Cadets to take advantage of its five-day PT program. With a 1430 SAT score, Campbell figures fitness was the reason she didn’t make the initial cut at the Air Force Academy. Out of the five military prep schools that serve the Air Force Academy, Campbell said, “GMC is the only one that does PT Monday through Friday.” She uses her free time to also exercise on weekends and
GEORGIA MILITARY CO LLEGE
sometimes twice a day. “I knew that I would get challenged here for that,” Campbell said, “I knew that I would want to get my fitness level up.” Like Campbell, a number of the female cadets with the GMC Corps of Cadets have career goals that match the national trend of women choosing to go into areas of the military previously only open to men. They want to be among the female pioneers who break down those barriers. For Ashley Sanders, a member of the Early Commissioning Program, that also means she can now follow as an Army officer in the footsteps of her grandfather, a Vietnam War veteran who served in the U.S. Marine Corps in combat infantry. “I want to go the same career path that my grandfather went. So, I want to go into infantry. Infantry just opened up a few years ago,” Sanders explained. “I wanted to be one of those people who could prove that we [women] could do it.”
Highest Number of Scholar Appointments The GMC Corps of Cadets Service Academy Preparatory Program ended the 2019-2020 academic year with a record number of 42 out of 44 Scholars receiving an appointment from one or more of the five U.S. service academies, which included the first-ever Corps cadet to be accepted to the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy. The Corps of Cadets Service Academy Preparatory Program expanded in August 2019 and now serves as an affiliated prep school for four U.S. service academies – U.S. Air Force Academy. U.S. Coast Guard Academy, U.S. Military Academy, and U.S. Naval Academy. The Service Academy Preparatory Program prepares candidates in the academics, physical training, character development, and leadership skills needed for them to excel at any of the five U.S. service academies.
State Service Scholarship Milestone During the 2019-2020 academic year, the GMC Corps of Cadets reached a milestone, contracting the maximum number of 42 cadets in its State Service Scholarship Program by the end of the Spring 2020 Term. A record number of around 18 State Service cadets is projected to earn their commission with the Georgia National Guard in 2021. The State Service Scholarship Program offers a full scholarship to Georgia residents who attend classes on the GMCMilledgeville campus full time while also serving part time in the Georgia Air or Army National Guard. Cadets are selected based on academics and potential as a future leader serving in the Georgia National Guard.
First Corps U.S. Merchant Marine Academy Appointee 141st Corps of Cadets self-prep Zachary Steiner is the first-ever cadet with the GMC Corps of Cadets to receive an appointment to the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy. The midshipman was also chosen to be a starting kicker for the USMMA football team. The Kittanning, Pennsylvania, native originally enrolled at GMC in fall 2019 as a Coast Guard academy scholar, but switched to the USMMA after the academy’s head football coach reached out to him halfway through the 2019-2020 academic year. Steiner was a walk-on player for the GMC Junior College football team during the 2019 season, serving as backup kicker for the Bulldogs. He now plays NCAA Division III football for the USMMA. Steiner made the Dean’s List during both terms he attended the GMC-Milledgeville campus while completing the demanding Corps of Cadets Service Academy Preparation Program. He has chosen Maritime Logistics and Security as his major course of study at the USMMA.

GMC BOARD OF TRUSTEES ... RANDALL “RANDY” NEW Trustee Emeritus
Randall “Randy” New was first introduced to Georgia Military College six decades ago as a wide-eyed first-grader who greatly admired the Prep School uniformed cadets he saw during lunchtime in the school cafeteria. As a ninth-grader, New became one of those charactercentered GMC Prep School cadets who carried themselves with dignity and wore a crisp ironed uniform featuring finely polished brass. It was at GMC Prep School that New learned how to be a leader – and learned he loved being a leader. He continued his studies and leadership training as a member of the GMC Junior College Corps of Cadets, where he was commissioned as an Army second lieutenant. The well-honed leadership skills he gained at GMC came in handy during the six years New served as an officer in the U.S. Army. Afterward, he returned to his hometown of Milledgeville to become co-owner of a small business owned by his in-laws. He continues to live by the values and the ethics instilled in him during his years at GMC. New also returned to his beloved high school and college alma mater in Milledgeville, where he first became a member of The GMC Foundation, before being elected to serve on the GMC Board of Trustees in 1992. Six years later, New took on a new
GEORGIA MIL ITARY CO LLEGE
leadership role at GMC by becoming chairman of the Board, a position he held for 22 years before stepping down in 2020. During his years as Board chairman, New made a significant impact on his GMC alma maters. Along with other members of the Board, he helped to guide expansion and renovations of the Prep School and Junior College. He led the way for more than $100 million in major facilities projects. Major facilities projects completed under New’s tenure as chairman include the Old Capitol Building restoration (2000), Boylan Hall (2005), Baugh Barracks (2006), Usery Hall (2010), Kidd Center (2014), Center for Ethics and Servant Leadership (2017), as well as the Prep School Annex and Jenkins Hall (2019). In addition, as Board chairman, New oversaw approval for the introduction of the Junior College Bachelor of Applied Science degrees program, as well as the addition of seven GMC campuses, which includes the Global Online College. Following his retirement from the GMC Board of Trustees, New has said he will continue to serve and to lead in other ways to support GMC. Ask New what keeps him active and engaged with his beloved alma mater, it was at GMC Prep School where he met his wife, Cynthia, 50 years ago, and he’ll quickly and simply reply, “The love of the school.”
CHANGE OF COMMAND IN 2020 GEORGE HOGAN SR. Board of Trustees Chairman
Local businessman and longtime Georgia Military College Board of Trustees Vice Chairman, George Hogan Sr., was elected as Board chairman in July 2020, becoming the first African American to hold the position. Hogan replaces Randy New, who stepped down as Board chairman after 22 years and has been appointed as a Trustee Emeritus for life. Ken Vance has been elected by the Board to serve as vice chairman. Hogan tapped Vance to fill Hogan’s former position as chairman of the Board Finance Committee. As Board vice chairman, Hogan also served on the Scholarship Committee and plans to remain active in that area of the Board. His main focus as chairman will be to maintain student enrollment numbers for the GMC Prep School, Junior College, and Global Online College. Hogan will continue to represent District 5. The Milledgeville native and Vietnam War veteran owns and operates George Hogan & Sons Logging and Tree Service. In addition to GMC, Hogan has been an active member
of a number of local civic and nonprofit organizations for a number of years, including the NAACP, 100 Black Men, and American Legion Post 523, where he is a lifetime member. Hogan is also president of the Baldwin Southern Christian Leadership Conference and a founding board member of the Habitat for Humanity Milledgeville/Baldwin County. He has served on other governing bodies in the community, including years spent as a Lockerly Arboretum Trustee and as a member of the Middle Georgia Regional Commission Council. As Board chairman, Hogan will continue to work with New together in their new positions. “We always work well together,” Hogan said referring to New. “His knowledge of what has been going on at GMC is invaluable. He has been here for so many years; we don’t want to lose that.”

DUDLEY ROWE Chairman
THE GEORGIA MILITARY COLLEGE FOUNDATION
The Georgia Military College Foundation Inc. exists to support Georgia Military College as it strives to meet its mission of producing educated citizens and contributing members of society. Through the generosity of our alumni and friends, the Foundation supports the hopes, dreams, and aspirations of GMC students, ensuring that they have every opportunity to succeed in life. Within these halls, EVERY student on EVERY campus has the opportunity to develop their intellect in an environment that also elevates their character. This focus on character education is the essence of GMC. During these unprecedented times, I am pleased to report that the Foundation remains financially sound and is leaning forward to support this vital mission of educating men and women of character. Our most recent fiscal year ending June 30, 2020, saw continued growth in operating revenue and disbursements to the College, and a year-over-year increase in overall net assets. Even with the uncertainty our nation has been facing, 4,633 gifts were received totaling $1,169,210. Our total net assets increased by 2.9% to $29,991,414, even with the market disruptions due to the pandemic. Because of your generosity, we were able to disperse $585,000 to help our students with scholarships. I could not be more proud of the Administration, faculty and staff of GMC, who through the biggest disruption in my professional career, found a pathway forward to keeping the doors open, and the classes operating safely. They are to be commended. I am equally proud of the Foundation. As we began to see the unique and special needs arising from the pandemic, we created the COVID-19 Humanitarian Crisis Assistance Fund, and have dispersed $154,090 from thus far to students whose families were impacted by the crisis. This has all been made possible through your investment in this institution. It is an investment in hope, opportunity, excellence, and leadership. It is an investment in an education grounded in the character and the values of Duty, Honor, and Country. When you invest in GMC, you are investing in our future. Thank you for your interest in The Georgia Military College Foundation, and for your continuing commitment to GMC.

LAWRENCE “L.J.” BAKER JR. GMC Junior College Alumnus (JC ’91) 2020 Alumni Achievement Award Recipient GMC Foundation Trustee Retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel
That same passion for developing discipline and leadership skills L.J. Baker exuded as GMC Corps of Cadets Drill Team commander and helped him guide the team to the national meet two years in a row has been fully embraced by his wife, Clarinda “C.J.” Baker. It was also the impetus behind why the couple established the Old Capitol Guard Drill Team Commander’s Scholarship to ensure the Corps of Cadets Drill Team and the traditions continue to shape future cadets.
GMC is truly a part of my foundation. I continue to use the lessons, skills, and attributes learned at GMC to achieve success in my personal and professional life. We hope to contribute to a culture of servant leaders and inspire others to give back to GMC.

EDWIN AMERMAN GMC Junior College Alumnus (JC ’90) Duck Creek Technologies, Vice President of Sales GMC Alumni Board of Directors Member
The character development and leadership abilities honed as a cadet battalion commander with the GMC Corps of Cadets provided a solid foundation that Edwin Amerman could turn to and build upon when life threw him a career-changing curveball. Edwin and his wife, Wendy, were instrumental in establishing the Opera Cum Fidelitate Scholarship and its annual wine tour fundraiser to make sure future generations of members in our Corps of Cadets have that same leg-up in life no matter where it takes them.
W hen life threw me a curveball and shook me to the core it made me sit back and think ‘what’s next.’ That’s when I relied on the focus and approach that GMC instilled in me. Why not give someone else that opportunity? 32

The Legacy of
CULVER “RUSTY” KIDD III The late Culver “Rusty” Kidd III was one of Georgia Military College’s most devoted supporters. He loved his hometown of Milledgeville, Georgia, and all that it entailed – which, for him, definitely included Georgia Military College. His strong, committed connection to GMC went back generations in the Kidd family, which included his grandmother, Tillie Kidd, and his father, Culver Kidd Jr., a GMC alumnus. Thanks to Rusty’s generosity and his passion for the GMC community, the Kidd family’s legacy at GMC will continue on well into the future. “It was just always important to the Kidd family. It was in his blood. His father loved it so much,” explained Rusty’s sister, Candy Kidd, regarding her brother’s lifelong affection for GMC. In addition to their shared affection for Georgia Military College, Rusty and his father, Culver Kidd Jr., were also passionate about civil service. They were both longtime state legislators who fought hard for their hometown of Milledgeville and Baldwin County. “He always wanted to look out for the people of Milledgeville and had a passion for GMC,” Rusty’s son, Culver Kidd IV, said as he stood in the downtown office of Hardwick Finance, a family business owned by his father and grandfather before him. GMC was a big part of Rusty Kidd’s childhood. He attended GMC Grammar, now Jenkins Hall, and played rec youth football on Davenport

Field. His family regularly attended GMC sports, plays, and other events on the Milledgeville campus. They would also watch with admiration as GMC cadets marched along downtown streets to attend church services on Sunday. The family tradition of attending GMC events and making the campus part of everyday life continued with Rusty Kidd and his two children, Katherine Kidd and Culver Kidd IV. Davenport Field was where father and son attended football games and flew their remote-control airplane. They also attended GMC cadet parades, right up until a few years before the elder Kidd passed away in 2020. The character-based reverence and discipline displayed by GMC cadets were deeply valued by Rusty Kidd and were always reflected within the Kidd home. “Manners and respect were two of the things my father always harped on,” said Culver Kidd IV, who noted that his father admired how GMC cadets carried themselves and their respectful practice of saying “yes, sir” and “no, sir.” The Kidd Health and Wellness Center at the Milledgeville campus stands as testimony to Rusty Kidd and the Kidd family’s multigenerational philanthropy in support of GMC. Rusty Kidd, a three-sport athlete in high school, who had two sports scholarships in college, stepped up to provide a major donation for construction of the state-of-the-art facility, known as The Kidd Center.
“I think sports and wellness have always been things that he held dear – so was education,” Culver Kidd IV said, noting that The Kidd Center combined all three. “The health center incorporated all of the things he was passionate about.”

His legacy will live on at Georgia Military College.”
