James Sayers Receives Distinguished Graduating Student Award

Mr. James Sayers, a sophomore at Georgia Military College in Columbus, was recently recognized as one of the community’s brightest and most celebrated students when he received the GMC Distinguished Graduating Student Award. 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.

Mr. James Sayers entered GMC Columbus in the fall of 2005 as a first-time freshman. Since that time he has consistently achieved academic excellence, receiving the highest marks in every one of his classes and is on track to graduate this spring with a GPA of 4.0. His dedication to academics, poise and character when combined with the initiative he has demonstrated in planning and achieving his goals gives great assurance that he embodies the GMC slogan “Start Here – Succeed Here – Go Anywhere.” His success at GMC will surely be duplicated as he works to complete his baccalaureate.

One student from each of Georgia Military College’s campus received this honor. The other Distinguished Graduating Students are: Eric Drake-GMC Augusta; Tamaro Ellis-GMC Atlanta; Renetta Hambrick-GMC Valdosta; Helen Porter-GMC Warner Robins; and Leah Prestwood-GMC Milledgeville.
