Making and Celebrating History at GMC: A message from General Caldwell
Making and celebrating history at GMC
A letter from Lieutenant General William B. Caldwell, IV, President of GMC
The last days of summer in August make up the first days of school for our Georgia Military College cadets and students on GMC campuses across the state. No doubt, the 2019-2020 academic year will be one filled with history here at GMC – both making it and celebrating it.
On August 1, we welcomed a record number of more than forty GMC Junior College Corps of Cadets Academy Scholars – which included U.S. Air Force and U.S. Naval scholars for the first time ever in GMC history.
The following day, the brand-new GMC Prep School Annex made history by opening its doors for the very first time. The state-of-the-art facility houses elementary school students, including the first group of third-graders in more than 50 years at GMC.
Junior College students at the GMC-Fayetteville campus were also welcomed with a new facility on the first day of classes this month. On August 20, GMC-Fayetteville held a grand opening for its 11,000-square-foot addition, marking a momentous milestone in its five-year history.
Without a doubt, this year is a truly special one in terms of history for us here at GMC. On October 14 we will celebrate our 140th birthday. It was on that date back in 1879 when the Georgia General Assembly approved the bill to establish Middle Georgia Military and Agricultural College, later named Georgia Military College.
Other GMC campuses are also celebrating anniversary milestones in 2019 and 2020. In March, GMC-Warner Robins celebrated 30 years. GMC-Sandersville has a 30th anniversary this year, as well. On August 6, GMC-Valdosta turned 40. And on August 29, the GMC-Augusta campus celebrates its 50th anniversary. We have plenty of reasons to celebrate history here at GMC.
When you stop to think about it, we’re helping to make history, too. GMC cadets and students walking through our doors on the first day of classes this month are taking the first steps and the next steps toward building their bright futures. They are each writing an important chapter in their lives to fill their own history books. Every member of the GMC Family is extremely honored to be a part of helping to creating that history.
So, welcome to all of our history makers here at GMC! I am excited to see where history takes each of our cadets and students. Step by step and day by day, let’s start building the next 140 years together!
