GMC Columbus Assistant Professor of Biology Dr. Jared Lee of Columbus placed 18th overall in the half marathon out of 996 participants. Lee was excited to compete in the Soldier Half Marathon because “these events . . . promote healthy lifestyles and encourage communities to come together.” Lee added, “I was so excited to hear that Georgia Military College would cover my registration fees. I think it demonstrates GMC’s commitment to the community and it offers students and employees opportunities to stay healthy."
