Renetta Hambrick Receives Distinguished Graduating Student Award

Ms. Renetta Hambrick, a sophomore at Georgia Military College in Valdosta, was recently recognized as one of the community’s brightest and most celebrated students when she 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.

When Renetta Hambrick leaves GMC, she will take with her more than the degree that will be conferred upon her at the graduation ceremony. She will also take with her the respect and admiration of her instructors and classmates. Renetta has been described by her instructors as responsible, conscientious, diligent, bright and hard working. Renetta’s Biology instructor, Dr. Lacey, recommended that Renetta be recognized for exhibiting the characteristics that are integral to Georgia Military College. Dr. Lacey stated that Ms. Hambrick embodies the spirit of our mission here. She said, “Renetta is reliable, organized and hard working, she takes responsibility for her education. She exhibits graceful pride and carries herself with dignity; undoubtedly, she will do well in whatever she puts her mind to.” Dean Hopper added, “Ms. Hambrick is an impressive woman who is well liked by students and instructors. Math did not come easy to Renetta, but she hung in there and did well, she’s got spunk. We could not ask for a better representative of the student body of Georgia Military College.”

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; Helen Porter-GMC Warner Robins; Leah Prestwood-GMC Milledgeville; and James Sayers-GMC Columbus.
