Georgia Military College received the 2006 Will Robinson Race School Spirit Award during the road race held Saturday, November 18, 2006. GMC Running and Cross Country Coach Stacie Goggans said, “260 GMC cadets, siblings, teachers and parents, ranging from GMC middle school through GMC junior college, participated in the race this year and this marks the 5th consecutive year that GMC has won the School Spirit Award.”
