GMC Prep School Teacher Attends WWII Conference
GMC Prep School Teacher Attends
Friends of the National World War II Memorial Teachers Network and Conference
This summer, 47 educators from across the country have been invited to participate in the Friends of the National World War II Memorial Teachers Network and Conference, among them is Georgia Military College Prep School teacher, Scott Seagraves. The conference features presentations by educators and other experts in the area of WWII history, a panel discussion with WWII veterans, tours of sites of WWII significance, and a remembrance ceremony at the WWII Memorial. The conference takes place In Washington, D.C., specifically Georgetown, from July 24-July 28, 2018.
While at the conference, Seagraves was given the opportunity to speak about someone he knew that served during World War II. He chose the honorable W.J. “Bill” Usery Jr., Distinguished Alumnus of GMC Prep School.
“I chose Mr. Usery because he is undoubtedly a GMC treasure, and I think a national treasure, too, that few people recognize,” Seagraves said. “He has impacted my own life and continues to do so as I teach our 8th-graders about him.”
At the heart of the Friends’ Teachers Network and Conference program is the concept of community service. Friends’ hopes conference participants will return to their schools and communities with the ability and desire to empower America’s young people with a heightened sense of community, civic engagement, and personal responsibility to renew the spirit of unity and shared purpose, which defined the character of our country during the war years. Therefore, each participant will be expected to enlist their students to fulfill a community service obligation within their communities in the year following the conference.
Seagraves’ plan is to remind the youth of the community of what is one of what he calls the ‘turning points of our history as a nation.’ He plans to create a memorial plaza soon, remembering all from Baldwin County who served during World War II.
