Jill’s Books Presented to GMC Prep Students

(Milledgeville, GA) January 11, 2007 – Georgia Military College eighth grade students recently received books from the Rotary Club’s new project called, “Jill’s Books.” The project is named in memory Jill Stewart, daughter of Randy and Susan Stewart, who was a student at GMC.

Rotarian Karen Brooks, who presented the books to students in MAJ Cindy Cawley’s class, said, “Jill was killed in an automobile accident when she was only 15 years old. This year makes the 10th year since her tragic accident. Jill loved to read and enjoyed life. She continues to be very special to this community. In honor and memory of this special young lady, and to further assist with literacy in Baldwin County, the Rotary Club is providing books for all 2nd graders in Baldwin County Schools and all 8th graders at Georgia Military College Prep School. The Rotary Club feels the earlier children develop the love of reading the better. Reading is the foundation of all learning and when we give our children the love of learning, it is a gift that will last a lifetime.”
