1879 Circle of Friends

The charter members of Georgia Military College’s 1879 Circle of Friends were honored during a reception on August 24th. Mr. Scott Brown, 1879 Circle of Friends campaign chairman, said, “As of today, 138 charter members of this group have raised $15,538 towards our endowment goal of $25,000. Once a minimum of $25,000 is reached, the endowment can be utilized to award scholarships to GMC Prep School students who are the children or grandchildren of GMC alumni.” Earlene Hamilton, GMC Alumni Relations Coordinator, said, “Anyone can become a member of the 1879 Circle of Friends by donating $18.79 (the year GMC was founded), or more, annually or as often as desired. Donations can be made in memory or in honor of someone.” For more information, contact Earlene Hamilton, 445-2695 or
