The Georgia Military College welcomed members of the community and leaders from across the state to the school’s ribbon cutting ceremony on Jan. 11. The Zebulon location is GMC’s 15th campus and classes will start in March. ’This is a wonderful thing for Zebulon and our community. Our students no longer have to go to another city to earn a college degree and that is a marvelous thing,’ said Zebulon mayor Bobby Blalock. ‘This is the biggest thing to happen in Pike County since I’ve been here and I’ve been here 25 years. Education is the most important thing a person can have. I hope the future here is brighter and brighter every year.’Brigadier General Rock Donahue, Executive Director of GMC’s Fayetteville, Fairburn, Stone Mountain and Zebulon campuses noted that a seed was planted years ago by Bill Taylor, president of Candler Field Museum, and like the falling rain, the idea has now broken through the dirt and is starting to grow. ’Due to the hard work of many, we will be providing affordable and accessible education here at our newest campus,’ he said. ‘It feels great that we are able to open our 15th campus here and there are many people in the city and county who are a part of this. We simply could not have established this campus without the steadfast support of your local leaders.’GMC offers three types of degrees, an associate of arts, an associate of science and an associate of applied science with majors including biology, business administration, computer information systems, computer science, criminal justice, cyber security, middle grades education, English, general studies, history, homeland security and emergency management, human communication, information technology, logistics management, mass communication, mathematics, paralegal studies, political science, pre-nursing, psychology, studio art, social work and sociology. GMC has articulation agreements with 45 colleges and universities that guarantees a local student’s successful transfer to the four-year institution with most of those schools also offering guaranteed admission agreements.
