Jenny Brown - (CotW) Determination

Georgia Military College Prep School recognizes Jenny Brown for earning the Character of the Week Award in demonstrating the virtue of Determination. “The GMC track team competed against Washington, Wilkinson, and Twiggs Counties last week at a meet in Sandersville. Coach Dennis and I realized we were very close in points to winning second place in the meet. Since we were a few runners short from the start, we needed to find a way to earn points in key events. We both looked into the stands and saw Jenny Brown there. We asked her to tackle the grueling one mile run, something no GMC runner had done all season. She did not hesitate but jumped out of the stands to run the event. Leading for a majority of the mile, she finished in second place in the race and gave GMC a boost to its second place finish in the meet. I want to nominate her for Character of the Week for the virtue of determination.” Nominated on March 22, 2010 By Brett Marshall History Department and Athletics Georgia Military Prep
