GMC Alumni Weekend honors alumni

MILLEDGEVILLE — Georgia Military College will host its Alumni Weekend on Friday and Saturday at the Milledgeville campus. Some of the weekend’s events include a golf tournament; GMC Prep vs. Lincoln County football game; the Alumni Parade featuring the 135th Corps of Cadets with guest speaker LTG Claude M. “Mick” Kicklighter, USA (Ret.), JC '52; the presentation of the 2013 Alumni Awards; a dance with entertainment by “The Grapevine;” and several opportunities for tours of GMC’s campus. 

One of the highlights of the weekend will be the honoring of a select group of individuals with Georgia Military College Alumni Awards. The recipients of these prestigious awards are selected annually from submitted nominations.

This year’s award recipients are George D.N. Coletti, D.M.D. (Distinguished Alumnus Award), Robert “Bob” Seymour (Alumni Achievement Award), Patricia Thompson (GMC Service Award), Ike Thomas (Community Service Award) and Ellen Goodrich (Honorary Alumna Award).

These five extraordinary people are representative of the fine character and countless acts of excellence displayed by the alumni and friends of Georgia Military College. GMC is fortunate to have been a part of the lives of each of these fine people. The contributions of the 2013 Alumni Award recipients have, without a doubt, made the world a better place.
