Donations made to GMC Scholarships

Captain Michael Lumpkin and Mrs. Suzanne Ratliff, Co-Chairpersons of the 19th Will Robinson Road Race, recently presented the Georgia Military College Foundation with a donation to benefit GMC’s Alumni Scholarship (1879 Circle).  The 1879 Circle funds scholarships for children or grandchildren of GMC alumni.  Race proceeds will also fund the William E. Robinson, IV Memorial Scholarship, which benefits a GMC prep school student who is the child of a Baldwin County Deputy Sheriff.

The Will Robinson Road Race has been held since 1996 to honor a fallen hero, Deputy Will Robinson, a 1987 graduate of GMC Prep School who was killed in the line of duty, December 17, 1995. Funds raised through the race are shared between scholarships at GMC and community initiatives of the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Department.
