GMC Expands Madison Campus
Georgia Military College Expands Madison Campus
On Monday, June 22, 2020, Georgia Military College and the Downtown Development Authority of Madison signed the Pearl-Burney agreement, marking the formal arrangement between the two parties to maintain the historical significance of the Morgan County Middle School and better access to higher education for the Madison community. At a future ribbon cutting ceremony, the Morgan County Middle School will be renamed the GMC-Madison Campus Pearl-Burney Annex.
Back in October of last year, Dr. James Woodard, Superintendent of Morgan County Schools, approached the GMC-Madison campus about expanding their campus footprint. After working with the Morgan County Board of Education, the Downtown Development Authority of Madison, and City Planning & Development, the proposal has become a reality.
Extension Center Director for GMC’s Madison campus, Leigh Aldhizer, says the Pearl-Burney Annex is currently being refurbished to be a site that students, faculty, staff, and community members will be proud of.
“This location of our expansion is a historic site, and the community did not want to see it torn down or left vacant,” Aldhizer said. “I am so glad that GMC will have a part in preserving the historic legacy of the Pearl-Burney Annex, and especially that the site will be used for educational purposes. This expansion is the perfect way to grow our campus.”
GMC will occupy five classrooms and a student lounge in the Pearl-Burney Annex. This will double the campus’ current capacity of 85. GMC-Madison will continue to hold classes at the current Main Street location, but will be able to accommodate more students and offer additional courses at the Pearl-Burney Annex.
Monica Callahan, Director of City Planning & Development says she looks forward to growing educational opportunities in the community.
“Madison is fortunate our Board of Education is insightful enough to unite us in a truly One Morgan campus, and even more so that our leaders are thoughtfully forging progressive partnerships necessary to ensure our historic site gets a new life and a superior anchor,” Callahan said. “I am confident the Pearl-Burney legacy of advancing education and community leadership will continue with GMC.”
The expansion of GMC-Madison’s campus is expected to be ready for students at the beginning of August.
