Huff Receives W. J. Usery, Jr. Award for Excellence

GMC Prep School graduate Alvin Huff was named the eighth recipient of the W. J. Usery, Jr. Award for Excellence during commencement ceremonies on May 30, 2008. This prestigious award recognizes exceptional overall achievement in academic and community efforts by a high school senior graduating from Georgia Military College. Alvin Huff, who will attend Mercer University in the fall, received a financial gift and will have his name listed on a commemorative plaque in the Old Capitol Building. This annual award was made possible by an endowment from its namesake, former U.S. Secretary of Labor, W. J. “Bill” Usery, Jr., who is a 1940 graduate of GMC Junior College. Alvin is the son of Pecola Huff of Milledgeville, Georgia.
