Georgia Military College is expanding. On Nov. 3, the school broke ground on its new leadership center. The new facility is the result of a partnership between the school and the NewDay USA organization.

The building will serve as a leadership center for GMC preparatory students. They will be given the opportunity to participate in numerous servant leadership positions in the center.

The GMC Board of Trustees approved the center and partnership after receiving more than $11 million dollars in donations. NewDay was the lead donor, giving $2 million dollars to the project.

“We are grateful and honored for the generosity of NewDay USA and the difference they are making in the lives of our students,” said Lt. Gen. William B. Caldwell, IV (USA, Ret.), President of Georgia Military College. “Creating a Center for Leadership on our campus will have an enduring positive impact for our school for generations to come.”

The center will also serve as a state-of-the-art facility to showcase world leaders that will help develop the students for GMC and the world beyond. The building will be a singlestory, freestanding building encompassing approximately 28,937 square feet. It will include an 820-seat auditorium and several classrooms. The center will house the NewDay USA leadership speaker Series, the NewDay USA Performing Arts Concert Series, and GMC Performing arts.

“The NewDay USA Center for Leadership will become recognized as ACS Catering Ad 5.19 x 5.qxp_ACS 9/3/20 11:46 a place where world class leaders from public service, the military, business, sports, and the arts come together to share their experiences and ideas on leadership,” said NewDay USA Founder and CEO Rob Posner. “Our partnership with GMC, its preparatory school, and their incredible faculty will contribute to developing our nation’s future generations of leaders.”

The NewDay USA Foundation is the philanthropic arm of NewDay USA. Since 2013, the Foundation has donated over $7 million dollars towards scholarships for veteran children. NewDay USA has partnered with GMC Prep School on various philanthropic activities since 2016. The NewDay Foundation has awarded 74 scholarships covering 100% of school tuition for students through the NewDay USA Allan B. Posner scholarship. 35 of the scholarships have been provided to GMC Prep School students. The NewDay USA scholarship is awarded to sons and daughters of Gold Star families, veterans who are 100 percent service-related disabled, and those that have served and been impacted by the Global War on Terror.

The center is expected to be complete by Fall 2022.
