GMC Announces Second Annual Mason Cup Award Recipient

GMC junior college student and golf team member Josh Holloway was presented the Mason Cup during a special ceremony held during the junior college football game on Thursday, October 3, 2002. Josh Holloway has played intercollegiate golf at GMC for two years. During this time, he has finished with a 75.5 per round scoring average and has participated twice in the National Division III Tournament, finishing in the top 20 both times. He will receive an associate degree from Georgia Military College in December 2002 and plans to attend Georgia College & State University as a nursing student in the spring of 2003. GMC golf coach Sonny Harmon said of Josh, “He is a leader on the golf course, a competitive but fair player, and he will be missed by those of us who watched him compete. We wish him the best of luck with his future endeavors.” The Mason Cup is an annual award named for Mr. and Mrs. Harold D. Mason, Sr., of Milledgeville who established an endowment fund to support the GMC junior college golf program. The inscription on the cup, which Mr. Mason authored, reads, “Golf and life will put your character to the test. Smile at the lie, have faith, achieve by effort, be determined and surpass the test.” In the attached photo, Josh Holloway (left) is shown with Mr. and Mrs. Mason.
