A U.S. Army UH 60 Black Hawk helicopter, piloted by GGC math professor Terry “Tee” Barron landed on the campus of Georgia Gwinnett College in front of the college’s signature building today as part of Military Appreciation Day which included military recruiters from the United States Marines, the Army National Guard and UGA ROTC. Georgia Adjutant General William “Terry” Nesbitt was the guest of honor and met with GGC President Daniel J. Kaufman, himself a retired Army general. In addition to the Black Hawk, an OH-58 Kiowa helicopter, a Howitzer and an HMMWV were on campus for observation. More than 1,000 yellow ribbons were distributed to students and faculty at the college. GGC hopes to institute an ROTC program of its own within the next two years.
