Kjer Computer Lab

Jim Kjer, a 1973 graduate of GMC High School, and his wife, Maggie, have generously provided $30,000 to name the computer lab in the New Academic Building. “I saw the naming opportunities in the New Academic Building at GMC as a wonderful way to honor my parents, Angie and Ed Kjer. They were my first and most important teachers. The lessons they taught me – honesty, follow through, persistence, taking responsibility for my actions – were reinforced at Georgia Military College,” stated Jim Kjer. “The naming of the computer lab in honor of my parents is a way for me to thank them. And it is a way to thank those at GMC who shaped my life. But, perhaps most importantly, this gift will help many more young men and women be shaped by the principles of this great institution: Duty, Honor and Country.”
