Mothers Day Parade

On May 6, members of the 132nd Corps of Cadets honored all mothers and mother figures with a special parade to express their sincere gratitude for all of the love, care and nurturing that they provide. Mrs. Carol Grant, leader of St. Stephen’s Day School and wife of State Senator Johnny Grant, was the distinguished speaker. The Distinguished Order of the Servant Leader Award was presented to Taylore Brooks, Megan Leben, Calli McMullen, Rebecca Riner, and Alysssa Williams. This award is presented to any member of the Georgia Military College family who completes 100 hours of community service in one year. This is an outstanding demonstration of selfless service. The Order of the Centurion Medal is awarded to Junior College cadets who epitomize the ideal cadet—those who are Scholars, Athletes, and Warrior Leaders. The criteria for the award include a 3.0 cumulative GPA, a 270 on the Army Physical Fitness Test with at least 90% in each event, complete a 12-mile road march with full combat load in less than 3 hours (the same standard as the Army’s Expert Infantryman’s Badge) and excel in the Corps of Cadets. This year’s recipients of the prestigious Order of the Centurion were: c/LTC Emmanuel Sosa, c/MAJ Roy Monroe, c/MAJ Anthony Maddox, c/CPT Julia Mack, c/1SG Nick Trouy, and c/MSG Danny Padron.
