Donations made to Will Robinson Scholarship and Alumni Scholarship Funds

Capt. Christopher Spires and Mrs. Suzanne Ratliff, Co-Chairpersons of the Annual Will Robinson Memorial Run, recently presented the Georgia Military College Foundation with a check in the amount of $4,000 for the Will Robinson Scholarship and the Alumni Scholarship Fund. Ratliff said, “We had 24 sponsors and 451 runners this year, making it the largest turnout we have had in the 14 years of the race!” This special event has been held since 1996 to support several local charities and to honor a fallen hero, Deputy Will Robinson, who was killed in the line of duty, December 17, 1995. Will Robinson was a 1987 graduate of GMC Prep School. Pictured from left to right are Capt.
