Jennie: GMC celebrating 51 years in Augusta


AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF) – We’ve got information for you today about the “Hope” pink bags that are showing up in some neighborhoods -not- affiliated with our local Hope House of Augusta. Also, how this year’s Walk for Water will still happen, just virtually!

But first, a local college has found a way to safely return to campus and hopefully keep the virus from spreading.

Georgia Military College is working to promote its “We are Open” campaign, which includes measure the school is taking to keep students, faculty and staff safe. There’s an ionization system that cleans the air by 99.4% in 30 minutes and is continuous, plus thermal temperature scanners, UV wands used for cleaning/sanitizing, and contactless hand sanitization stations throughout campus.

In addition to those things, GMC-Augusta campus has many upcoming events to give back to the community as it celebrates its 51st Birthday.

Here with more is Enrollment and Recruitment Mgr, Missie Usry.
