Prep Students Receive NewDay USA Scholarships

On February 22, two GMC Prep students were awarded scholarships from the NewDay USA Foundation. Gary Morrison, NewDay USA Vice-President of Scholarship Development, presented scholarships to Cadets Tyler Lightner and Jacob Bailey. These scholarships will cover their tuition costs for the remainder of their prep school education.


“I was like oh gosh, I didn’t know,” said Cadet Tyler Lightner, 7th grade GMC Prep student. “It was a complete surprise that I was the recipient of a scholarship”. “GMC has been a great experience for me and a really good school, it has great kids, and everybody is really nice.”


For 8th grade student, Cadet Jacob Bailey, receiving the scholarship means he was making his family proud. “It feels good to receive a scholarship and to see that hard work really pays off,” said Jacob. “I always try to make my dad proud by working hard”.


To receive a NewDay USA Foundation scholarship, an applicant’s parent or legal guardian must be:

- a fallen U.S. armed service member killed on active duty,

- a U.S. Veteran with significant (greater than 80%) service-connected disability,

- a U.S. Veteran who has died due to their service-connected disability, or

- a member of the armed forces on extended or multiple deployments away from home.


Both Lightner and Bailey were selected for the scholarship awards based on outstanding performance, potential, and the distinguished military service of a parent. Their fathers have been deployed multiple times in support of our country.  Master Sergeant (MSGT) Todd Lightner, is currently a Crew Chief Supervisor for the Georgia Air National Guard. He has served in the military for 24-years and has been deployed nine times. MSGT Lightner spent seven years on active duty in the United States Air Force before joining the Georgia National Guard.

NewDay USA has awarded 30-scholarships to students nationwide, and eight of those students attend GMC’s Prep School. Both MSGT Lightner and LTC Bailey say they are very appreciative and proud of the NewDay USA Foundation for recognizing their military service and for selecting each of their sons for this remarkable scholarship.
