Gil Receives Georgia Civil War Commission Scholarship

Georgia Military College recently awarded the Georgia Civil War Commission Scholarship to Cadet Bolivar Gil, of Milledgeville, Ga.

Mr. Gil, the first recipient of this scholarship, is a member of the 131st Corps of Cadets and a sophomore at GMC where he is studying criminal justice. “This scholarship gives me greater enthusiasm to continue with my studies because it lets me know others care about my future and the value of my education,” said Gil. He plans to continue his education at Mercer University and pursue a career in the criminal justice field.

The Georgia Civil War Commission Scholarship, established in 2009, is available for GMC junior college cadets who are residents of the State of Georgia with a 2.5 grade point average or above. This scholarship provides an opportunity for students who may otherwise not have the chance to attend college.
