Wilcox Recognized

Ms. Dianne Wilcox, Humanities Coordinator and English Composition and Literature Professor at the Warner Robins campus of Georgia Military College, was honored as the 2006 recipient of the Moore Family Fund for Teacher Enrichment Award, Thursday, August 24, 2006. Ms. Wilcox was recognized for consistently demonstrating an exceptional ability to stimulate her students in English Composition and Literature, and to increase their ability to communicate effectively and concisely.

Ms. Dianne Wilcox joined the faculty of Georgia Military College in 1996 as an adjunct professor and became a full-time faculty member in 1997.

The Moore Family Fund is an endowment established by brothers, Powell A. Moore and Jere N. Moore, Jr., and their aunt, Dr. Floride Moore Gardner, in memory of Jeremiah N. Moore, one of the founders of Georgia Military College and longtime member of the GMC Board of Trustees; his son, Robert Boling Moore, and grandson, Jere N. Moore, both of whom served on the GMC Board of Trustees, and his daughter, Mattie Moore, who taught at GMC Elementary School. All of them served Milledgeville in the newspaper business, and all dedicated their lives and work to the betterment of GMC and their community. The purpose of the fund is to supplement the salary of a junior college faculty member who is improving the writing skills of students in the interest of enhancing their capacity for contributing to their community, state and nation through the use of the English language.
