GPC to Pay Tribute to the "Greatest Generation."
Do you have a story to share? Georgia Perimeter College campuses are looking for members of the "greatest generation" to share their stories of life during WWII.
Were you one of those people now referred to as a member of the "greatest generation?" Were you in combat in World War II? Or do you have memories of being on the home front in that war? If you do, The Newton campus of Georgia Perimeter College would like to hear from you.
All GPC campuses are scheduled to participate in a symposium on World War II during the week of November 7. According to a press release from the Newton Campus, each campus will present public events commemorating and teaching about the war in which Americans who have come to be known as the “Greatest Generation” saved the world from fascist oppression.
Among its events, GPC Newton plans to present an oral history program in which several community residents will share their memories of living through WWII. In order to do this, the college is asking WWII veterans in the Covington, Social Circle or local area to share their experiences. It is also asking those who stayed home to keep the home fires burning to share their stories too - especially if they lived in the local area at that time.
If you would like to recall your experiences for an audience of GPC students, faculty, staff and the general public, contact Chris Moser at 770-278-1308 or Christopher.Moser@gpc.edu. This is to help pay tribute to those community members who were part of the "greatest generation."
Georgia Perimeter College, the third largest institution of the University System of Georgia, serves more than 25,000 students through four campuses and several sites in metro Atlanta. For additional information, visit www.gpc.edu.
