Congressman Jody Hice honors former GMC Board of Trustees Chairman

U.S. Congressman Jody Hice Presents Commendation Letter to Former GMC Board of Trustees Chairman

On Saturday, August 29, 2020, U.S. Congressman Jody Hice visited Georgia Military College to host his annual Service Academy Day event. While on campus, Hice recognized former GMC Board of Trustees Chairman, Randy New, who recently retired from the distinguished position. Hice awarded New a commendation letter to commemorate his service to GMC.

Before presenting the commendation letter Hice said, “Randall has been Chairman for 22 years and has done a spectacular job. As he is retiring, we just want to recognize him… He is absolutely an exceptional leader in every way.”

New is a proud alumnus of both GMC Prep School and College, who was also commissioned as a U.S. Army second lieutenant with the GMC Corps of Cadets, and has served District 2 on the GMC Board of Trustees since 1992, 28 years total.

Under New’s tenure as Chairman, the GMC Board of Trustees approved a number of major facility projects with a total capital investment of more than $100 million, expanded the College degree offerings to include Bachelor of Applied Science options, and added seven college campuses across the state, to include the Georgia Military Global Online College.

Prior to serving on the GMC Board of Trustees, New was a member of the GMC Foundation, where he was instrumental in bringing in funds and increasing real estate investments to support the institution during a critical time in its 140-year history.

GMC and Congressman Hice honor the significant impact that New’s leadership had on thousands of GMC students, faculty, and staff members for more than a quarter of a century.
