Georgia Military College Columbus Student Honored With Servant Leader Award

GMC Columbus student Corey Robbins of Fort Mitchell, AL, was recently inducted into the Distinguished Order of the Servant Leader. The Distinguished Order of the Servant Leader (DOSL) Award is presented to any GMC student, faculty, or staff member who completes at least 100 hours of volunteer community service during a calendar year. GMC Columbus is proud to honor students who demonstrate leadership and selflessness by volunteering to serve others in their community.

A General Studies major, Robbins completed over 320 hours of community service, which is over three times the normal requirement for the award. In addition to his DOSL award certificate and medal, Robbins also received a Gold-level Presidential Volunteer Service Award from the Corporation for National and Community Service, which includes an award certificate, a medal, and a letter from President Obama.

Robbins is pleased that GMC Columbus honors those who are involved in community service: “it felt so amazing to know I was being recognized for my hard work and dedication.” He explained that “knowing it makes an individual’s life better” motivates him to serve his community. “I love the feeling of knowing I helped someone less fortunate than me,” Robbins added. After finishing his Associate degree at GMC Columbus, Robbins plans to transfer into the RN program at Columbus State University.
