MILLEDGEVILLE, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, September 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — NewDay USA CEO Rob Posner and COO Michael Oursler on September 10th awarded the Allan B. Posner Memorial Scholarship to a student from a veteran family at Georgia Military College Prep School, in commemoration of Patriot Day.
Patriot Day commemorates the lives lost as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Georgia Military College commemorated the day across its 13 campuses with events aimed at explaining the significance of 9/11 to students.
“Patriot Day is a solemn, difficult occasion, especially now that we mark the 20-year anniversary of 9/11,” said NewDay USA CEO Rob Posner. “It’s important that we take the time to reflect on what happened that day—but also to recognize the enormous bravery of the men and women that answered their country’s call in the years following, and find ways to give back. That’s the goal of the Allan B. Posner scholarship.”
The scholarship is being awarded to the child of a veteran of the war in Afghanistan, and will cover tuition for 13 years at Georgia Military College Prep School. This marks the 35th Allan B. Posner scholarship Posner has presented to GMC Prep School students whose parents have specific military affiliations.
“The Allan B. Posner scholarship has made such a difference in the lives of many of our students,” said Dr. Steve Greer, principal of GMC Prep School. “We are extraordinarily grateful to Rob and the NewDay USA team for their continued support of Georgia Military College students and veteran families.”
