Helen Porter Receives Distinguished Graduating Student Award
Ms. Helen Porter, a sophomore at Georgia Military College in Warner Robins, was recently recognized as one of the community’s brightest and most celebrated students when she received the GMC Distinguished Graduating Student Award during the Memorial Day Parade on May 16, 2008 at the Milledgeville Campus. This award recognizes a graduating student that is the best representative of the college and embodies all the qualities a graduate of Georgia Military College should possess.
Helen Porter is an exemplary student at GMC-Warner Robins. Not only is she a full-time RAFB employee and a mother and wife, but she is also an active member of the GMC student body who will graduate with a 3.6 GPA in the June 2008.
Helen has served as President of the Beta Gamma Theta Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society for 2007-08. She oversees chapter meetings and rallies fellow members. As a chapter officer, she was an asset to the 2007 GMC Old Book Sale. She assisted in collecting used book donations from students and the community to be sold as a club fundraiser initiative. She volunteered time to man the book sale table.
She assists with each Red Cross Blood Drive on campus, which is sponsored by Phi Theta Kappa. She uses her flex time from RAFB to spend the day running the blood drive registration table, organizing the donors and filling-out paperwork.
Along with juggling her family, church and academic responsibilities, she also served as the primary caregiver to her ailing mother, who passed away last year. Throughout the hardships of her mother’s illness, she always remained positive and upbeat, stayed on top of her class obligations and club duties.
She maintains a strong relationship with the faculty of GMC. She was nominated as a “Who’s Who Among American Junior Colleges” student for 2007. According to her English teacher, Dianne Wilcox, “Helen Porter is a conscientious and diligent student. She not only works for her own academic success, but she encourages other students to excel. I wish I had more students like her.”
She is pictured with her husband, Kenneth Porter, and grandson, Andre Patteron, Jr. who is a middle school student at Georgia Military College Prep School in Milledgeville.
