Military Memorial Dedication is April 18

A dedication ceremony for the Military Memorial will be held on Saturday, April 18 at 2 p.m. during Alumni Weekend.

The public is invited to attend.

The site, where North Barracks once stood, is between Lambdin Hall and Hightower Library and is visible from College Drive.

The Memorial contains a Wall of Honor with the names of alumni who lost their lives in service to the United States. The cannons on campus will be relocated to the site, and a model of the old Lambdin Hall portico serves as the site's western entrance.

"Far into the future Gordon students and alumni will walk through the columned portico and read the names on the wall. They will know that we valued the sacrifice these students and faculty made. They will understand that Gordon's history as an honor Army ROTC school was part of the heritage and foundation of the institution," said Rhonda Toon, Gordon State vice president of advancement.
