Alexa Anderson & Gillian Reid – INTEGRITY

Georgia Military College Prep School recognizes Alexa Anderson and Gillian Reid for for earning the Character of the Week Award in demonstrating the virtue of INTEGRITY.

I would like to nominate Alexa Anderson and Gillian Reid for Character of the Week. During a recent joint enrollment class, these two young ladies were accidently provided with a copy of the final examination for the course. Without a moment’s thought, they returned the exam to the instructor in a discreet manner. The outcome of this course could have easily been rendered if these ladies took the easy route and cruised for the remainder of the term, but they chose to do the honorable thing while protecting the integrity of the instructor by not pointing out the mistake in a public forum. This is just another example of a virtue being practiced by these cadets and I am very proud of them for their integrity.
