Wing in Old Capitol Building Dedicated to GMC Alumnus, Bob Seymour
Georgia Military College (GMC) has always been close to Bob Seymour’s heart. As a graduate of the junior college in 1963, Mr. Seymour credits GMC and his wife Kathey for his success and many accomplishments. Because of the lessons he learned at GMC, he wanted to give back to the institution. On Friday, April 26, 2019, GMC held a wing dedication ceremony, unveiling the Seymour Wing on the second floor rotunda of the Old Capitol Building.
Mr. Seymour says the Old Capitol Building was a special place for him during his time at GMC, and it was where he learned a lot about himself, not only academically, but personally.
“In life GMC taught me there wasn’t anything I couldn’t do,” Mr. Seymour said. “My experience there really built my character and helped me become the person I am today. When I got to college I didn’t know how to study, I wasn’t a good student. But after changing those habits and bettering myself at GMC, I wanted to be the best at what I did going forward in life. I wanted to autograph the work that I did by the job I did. That drive and motivation started in Milledgeville at GMC and that’s why I wanted to give back.”
A true measure of a school’s success lies in the achievements of its alumni, and Mr. Seymour’s achievements serve as testament to the value of a GMC education. Following his graduation from GMC, he earned a business degree from Stetson University. His business career took him to Electrical Insulation Supplies, where he led sales and profits 33 of his 38 years. Together with Kathey, his wife of 54 years, they brought up four children, and have 14 grandchildren, they’ve owned a barbecue restaurant, raised cattle, built homes and invested in the free market, all of which has left him “truly blessed.” In 2013, Seymour was honored with the GMC Alumni Achievement Award.
Mr. Seymour kicked off the Corps of Cadets’ Leadership Engagement Series, by speaking to the Corps about his success, and how they can apply it to their own lives. He was the first guest speaker for the series.
Brigadier General Curt Rauhut, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at GMC, says the institution is grateful for Mr. Seymour’s long-lasting friendship. Mr. Seymour’s time at GMC played a big role in his life, where character development and a strong work ethic was established.
On behalf of all the faculty, staff, and students of GMC, we are extremely grateful to the entire Seymour family for the enduring legacy of the Seymour Wing, now located in the Old Capitol Building.
