Awards & Recognition

The purpose of the Georgia Military College Senior Reserve Officer Training Corps (SROTC) Cadet Awards and Decorations Program is to motivate cadets to achieve excellence in military, scholastic, athletic, and extra-curricular activities.

Awards are presented at military ceremonies and functions throughout the year to cadets who have demonstrated meritorious achievement and excellence.

Approved awards include trophies, plaques, ribbons, medals, certificates, and military sabers. At Georgia Military College there is a presentation of the Saber Award to the outstanding company from each battalion at the end of the school year. Guidon Streamers are presented to each company throughout the year in the areas of excellence in Barracks and in-ranks inspections, parade performance, academics, discipline and intramural Sports participation. The companies that have been awarded the most streamers are selected as the Saber Companies for that school year.

Also unique to Georgia Military College are the Order of the Centurion Medal and the Distinguished Order of the Servant Leader Medal. The Order of Centurion is awarded to cadets who demonstrate outstanding academic performance, leadership potential, and pass a rigorous physical fitness event. The Service Medal is awarded to cadets who accumulate more than 100 hours of community service during the school year.
