Cadet Recognition Ceremony

Georgia Military College Prep School recently honored those students who have distinguished themselves in academics and character. An assembly for the high school was held on October 22, and an assembly for the middle school was held on October 24. Colonel Fred Van Horn, GMC Executive Vice President spoke to the students at both assemblies and offered inspiring remarks about the words we live by at GMC: Duty, Honor, Country, and Character Above All! Major Brent Gebel then presented the Character Education Videos for the months of August and September. This is a new project for the prep school and the students have done a fantastic job. Each month will focus on specific virtues and provide filmed examples of character in action. Colonel John Thornton, GMC Prep Principal, recognized cadets who were present for every class period of every day during Quarter 1, thereby achieving Perfect Attendance. 6th GRADE Austin, Lance Austin, Lawrence Bache, Megan Bershadsky, Katie Bethea, Jenna Blackwell, Todd Bradley, Malik Brown, Camille Clay, Stephen Dubay, Kayla Easterly, Taylor Goddard, Keondra Gresham, Bridgit Grimes, Marion Harding, Joseph Humphrey, Jahmayka Kala, Kaiten Kotrick, Kassie Lee, Macie Litke, Jonathan Mack, Jasmine Mapp, Maya Mason, Zoya McCollum, Sara Myers, Kevin Pearson, Lauren Pennington, Chandler Phillips, Zachary Robertson, Janna Smith, Scott Spear, Orlando Stone, Vanna Tanner, Brannon Torrance, Nathan Turner, Alyssa Ubah, Priscaflorence Umuna, Shekinah Warren, Joshua Wood, Dalton 7th GRADE Bethea III, John Butts, Jeremy Colwell, Andrew Dudley, Adam Falchook, Devin Gray, Mary Grimes, Jostin Hamilton, Austin Harris, LaRodrick Harvell, Anyiel Hollis, Danielle Hussey, Jason Jeanes, Bobby Kirby, Kevin Langston, Marissa Lowe, Cameron Meeks, Cody Merica, Ryan Poole, Sarah Reece IV, Elvin Renfroe, Brisha Russ, Kaitlyn See, Austin Spires, Haley Spivey, Victoria Walls, Maya Williams, Christine Williams, Savannah Wilson, Matthew Wright, Quanterrio Young, Chobi 8th GRADE Amason, Ethan Amerson, Alyssa Baugh, Nolan Bentley, Richard Brown, Jennifer Brown, Logan Chaney, Natasha Colburn, Timothy Colwell, Christopher Easterly, Tyler Grant, John Jadol, Geovic Lanzilotta, Krista Miller, Timothy Nolan, Nicklos Parham, Justin Peeler, Kathrine Weekly, Amanda Wood, Laurel Zant, Wesley 9th GRADE Archebelle, Dustin Beasley, David Bloodworth, Morgan Bohannon, Jordan Budrys, Taylor Chaney, Danielle Crawley, Joel Easley, Sherika Grimes, Robert Humphrey, Shawn Johnson, Tiffany Kotrick Jr., Kevin Lee, Trevin Lumpkin, Zoe Lundy, Amanda Stevens IV, John Sweat, Heather Thrower, Cory Tighe, Sean Veal, Stephanie Williams, Alyssa 10th GRADE Bloodworth, H.
