Georgia Military College is opening in Eastman this FRIDAY. Did you read that correctly? Did you let it sink in?
A community college right here in Eastman Georgia and it starts this week with an official ribbon cutting ceremony this Friday. You might want to attend. It starts at 10:00 Friday morning. Macy Pruett will be singing the National Anthem. You really should be there to experience history in the making.
Now, what is GMC? Will there be marching and military training and parades? No, not on the Eastman Campus.Yes, it is happening in Milledgeville at their main campus and students from here might decide to go there and take advantage of that opportunity and everything that comes with it.
However, the Eastman Campus, like Dublin and Warner Robins, and their other ten branch locations is a community college. It’s co-ed! It is not a Military school but instead a place where you, whatever age you are, may earn your associates degree. You can be accepted without an SAT or other standardized testing. It’s a place of learning that is affordable, well managed, and recognized as a center for education.
We are so fortunate to have Georgia Military College locate it’s 13th community college in Eastman Georgia.
Make plans to come and celebrate Friday morning, 10:00! The new facility is next to the Murrell Memorial Library on Legion Drive in Eastman.
