GMC Columbus Student Receives Georgia Power Scholarship

Georgia Military College Columbus is pleased to announce that Kellie Edenfield of Columbus has been awarded the Georgia Power Scholarship for the 2014-2015 school year. The Georgia Power Scholarship is offered once a year to a non-traditional student attending GMC Columbus. The application process required Edenfield to provide letters of recommendation from civic or community leaders and to write about her reasons for attending college. The qualifications that lead to Edenfield’s selection included grade point average, community involvement, and involvement within the school. Edenfield described the experience of receiving the scholarship, saying, “it feels awesome. I’m super excited!” She went on to say that because GMC Columbus advertised the scholarship and application process so frequently, she felt she “couldn’t not apply.” Edenfield plans to transfer to Columbus State University and pursue a bachelor’s degree in elementary education after finishing her associate degree in early childhood education here at GMC Columbus.
