Ethics-In-Education Award Announced

(Milledgeville, GA) April 1, 2004 – The President of Georgia Military College (GMC) has established an Ethics-In-Education Award, which will be presented annually to a GMC faculty or staff member who contributes most to furthering the Character Education goal of the institution. Our goal is to do what we can, in the short time we have with each student, to insure that they leave our college better prepared to meet future ethical challenges and better prepared to be leaders and participating citizens in their communities.

Every employee of the GMC Middle and High School and the Junior College is eligible for this award, whether located at one of the Distant Learning and Extension Centers located across Georgia or at the Milledgeville Main Campus. Nominations are to be made now, and a recognition ceremony will be held near the end of each school year.

Georgia Military College is proud of, and wishes to recognize, exceptional contributions made by our employees to the character development of our students. The work our teachers and staff members do requires extraordinary effort and creativity to make the learning experience relevant and lasting. The opportunities are many. GMC Middle School and High School teachers–and Junior College faculty members–teach ethics courses and integrate ethics across the curriculum. They teach the language of ethics by incorporating an Ethics-Word-of-the-Week and Quarter into their course work. A number of them assist students in organizing nationally recognized community service projects and work side by side with students in a wide variety of other service undertakings. All are encouraged to search for and get maximum teaching value out of the many character development opportunities available in and outside every academic program and student activity. Those who do this best deserve special recognition.
