During the ceremony, General Rauhut will be awarded the Distinguished Service Medal and a Certificate of Appreciation from the President of the United States for his service in maintaining the security of our nation during a critical time in its history with a devotion to duty and a spirit of sacrifice.

In addition, Mrs. Julie Rauhut will be awarded the Department of the Army Certificate of Appreciation for her devoted service, support, and understanding which helped make possible her husband’s lasting contribution to the nation.

General Rauhut most recently served as the Army’s Director of Resource Management for the Installation Management Command in San Antonio, Texas, where he directly managed $11 billion to operate 152 military garrisons and activities around the globe.  He graduated from Fayette County High School in 1980, and then attended Jacksonville State University where he received two Bachelor of Science degrees, one in Accounting and the other in Military Science. He later received an MBA from Syracuse University in New York and an M.A. in National Security and Strategic Studies from the U.S. Naval War College. 

General Rauhut officially began work as GMC’s Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer on July 17, 2014.  Among his many duties, he is directly responsible for ensuring all ten GMC campuses located across the state are operating effectively and efficiently.
