Military college writes names of fallen


Georgia Military College in Milledgeville highlighted the sacrifices of those the nation mourns with chalk.

More than 500 students and faculty paid tribute to ten thousand people killed in the September 11th attacks and the resulting Global War on Terror.

Scribbling with a piece of chalk is a simple gesture with a complicated mission-- help those born after September 11th to comprehend its impact.

"That's our purpose for doing this project," says the prep school history department chair, Colonel Scott Seagraves. "To help them remember, not necessarily the events, but the people."

He is 17 now, but was only 4 when the planes struck the Twin Towers. Senior, Conner Deen, says the visual opened his eyes to the day's significance.

Georgia Military College remembers 9/11


Thursday marks the 13th Anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. In addition to remembering September 11th, 2001, Georgia Military College is also educating its students.

Come Thursday afternoon, a majority of these bricks will be covered in names.

"It's more than just names on a brick, it's an act of remembrance." That's what Scott Seagraves, Chairman of the history department at the Georgia Military College prep school says.

He says while trying to think of how the prep school should mark the 9/11 anniversary something hit him.

"It dawned on me that most of our kids, they just don't know, because they didn't experience it. Even our seniors were 5 years old at the time."

So, he thought of the bricks outside on the schools campus.

He says, "We've got all these bricks, so let's use chalk and let's just put chalk to brick and remember them that way."

Milledgeville festival merges art, health


One organization gave people the opportunity to combine their art and active sides on Saturday.

Campus Club Milledegeville hosted an art and health festival on the campus of Georgia College.

From music to fresh grown products, people of all ages were able to explore the combination of art and health there was to offer.

Kids were able to paint and make their own instruments, while parents enjoyed learning about a colorful food palette for their family.

Organizers say the festival is focused on a "holistic" approach to health.

GMC student in global shooting competition


Helen Oh is a bit of an anomaly at Georgia Military College.

She stands out not only for her marksmanship, but because she's the only pistol shooter in the gang.

"There's no team for pistols, just for rifles so I'm just shooting as an individual," Oh said.

Oh is one of 85 pistol shooters representing the U.S. in Spain next week.

She'll be taking part in the 51st International Shooting Sport Federation World Championship.

Oh says she wanted to stand out in high school, so that's when she picked up the pistol.

"I just wanted to be the first one out of all of my friends to do something like that and then I joined and everyone thought it was cool, so I kept on doing it," she said.

Oh has competed in the Junior Olympics and a national pistol competition where she came in second.
