Georgia Military College announced today that Pam Grant has been promoted from lieutenant colonel to colonel and will serve as principal for the Preparatory School. GMC leaders officiated her promotion today during morning formation.

“Col.

Caldwell, IV, President, Georgia Military College. “She has a track record of success in delivering outstanding services to our students, fostering collaboration amongst staff and faculty, and advancing the school’s mission and purpose."

Col. Grant’s 29-year career in education began at Georgia Military College’s Preparatory School, where she served as an English and social studies instructor, as well as a sponsor for multiple student activities. After serving as the English Department chair for four years, Col. Grant transitioned into administration, where she has served as assistant principal since 2005.

Col.

She also received a master’s degree in English education from Georgia College, where she earned her Educational Leadership endorsement, as well.

“GMC Prep School is truly making a difference in the lives of young people every day, and that’s why it’s such a great honor and privilege to serve as principal,” Grant said. “The Prep School's greatest assets are our outstanding faculty and staff, and our impressive student body. I plan to continue to work with the faculty on our strategic plan, focusing on the institution’s 4 Big Ideas: Contribute to Student Success, Grow Enrollments, Think and Act as One Institution, and Invest in the Future of GMC. I truly believe that together we can make GMC Prep School an even better place to provide young people with an excellent academic education. And, just as importantly, we can instill in them the character traits needed to be contributing members of society for the rest of their lives.”
