June 13, 2014 –Dr. Ivelaw Lloyd Griffith, president of Fort Valley State University and Lieutenant General William B. Caldwell IV, president of Georgia Military College (GMC) recently signed an articulation agreement that makes it easier for GMC students to attend Fort Valley State. The articulation agreement signing took place at June 10 at 11:30 a.m. in the legislative chamber of the Old Capitol Building on GMC’s campus.
