Health Editor’s Note: Four students have received scholarships to attend the Georgia Military College Preparatory School. What’s unique about these students is that they are children of servicemembers who have been deployed to combat in the global war on terror.
In addition to their parents’ military service, the scholarships were awarded based on the students’ scholastic record of achievement. The selected students not only exhibited signs of diligence in school, but they worked hard at home helping one parent while another parent was deployed.Thank you, NewDay USA…Carol

The scholarship recipients are children of service members who have deployed to combat in the global war on terror.

The four recipients were selected for the 2019 scholarship awards based on their mothers’ and fathers’ deployments, as well as their scholastic record of achievement. Recipients not only showed signs of being hard working in school, but in their homes through helping their parent while another parent is deployed or working.
“At NewDay USA, we acknowledge the significant sacrifice of our service men and women as well as their families and their commitment to our country during the Global War on Terror,” said Rob Posner, Founder and CEO of NewDay USA. “The purpose of this scholarship is to support young men and women in their pursuit of academic success and character development, and to prepare them to become our next generation of leaders.”
“NewDay recognizes these enormous sacrifices servicemembers and veterans make and we are all incredibly grateful,” said Lt General William Caldwell (Ret)., President of Georgia Military College. “We have set an environment in place, but NewDay has given them the ability to receive an education with us.”
Rob Posner was further honored by GMC Prep School through an invitation to speak during graduation at the Milledgeville Campus. As commencement speaker, Rob encouraged those graduating to go out into the world and continue to use the skills learned at the Georgia Military College Preparatory School to forward their imminent successes. Rob said in his speech, “In life, you will feel the joy of success and the hardship of failure. But it is your principles and values you have been given by your parents, your faith, and your experience at GMC that will define you in victory or defeat.”
