Georgia Military College Announces Barbara Shaheen Scholarship Recipient

Georgia Military College recently awarded the Barbara Shaheen Scholarship for the 2013 winter quarter to Shirley Breeze, of Kathleen, Ga. Shirley Breeze, who is majoring in logistics, is a member of the Student Government Association, and volunteers for the Museum of Aviation, the Robins AFB Enlisted Spouses Club, the Red Cross blood drives, the GMC health fairs and her church. She said, “I plan to pursue a bachelor’s degree in logistics at Middle Georgia State College. Thanks to Mrs. Shaheen, I am one step closer to that goal. This scholarship has lightened my financial burden, allowing me to focus more on learning. I hope that one day I will be able to help students achieve their goals, just as Mrs. Shaheen has helped me.” The Barbara Shaheen Scholarship was established by GMC alumna Barbara Shaheen in 2008. “I wanted to give something back, and establishing this scholarship was a way to help other students with their education. As a senior citizen in the state of Georgia there was no charge for my tuition, when I attended GMC. The scholarship was a great way to repay all the kindness and education I have received from GMC.” Pictured (left to right) Barbara Shaheen and Shirley Breeze.
