Boylan receives county proclamation

MILLEDGEVILLE —

The Baldwin County Commissioners paid tribute to retired Maj. Gen. Peter J. Boylan with a proclamation for his achievements during a valiant army career and while president of Georgia Military College.

Commissioner Henry Craig, District 4, honored GMC’s 20th president who began his tenure in 1992. Boylan’s 30-year army service was recognized.

The distinguished military figure earned various awards included the Distinguished Service Medal, Silver medal, Legion of Merit, three Bronze Stars (two for Valor) and the Purple Heart. At GMC, Boylan negotiated $75 million in public and private funds for 120 major projects to rebuild on the old capital state campus and established eight GMC distance-learning centers throughout the state.

"Gen. Boylan has led GMC through a period of unprecedented growth increasing the prep school enrollment by 60 percent while graduating 99 percent of those enrolled and increasing junior college enrollment by 800 percent,” Craig said Tuesday.

Boylan thanked the board for the honor.

"Everybody does their duty. I had mine. You’ll have yours and as long as everyone is doing their duty, this country is going to prosper," Boylan said.
