NewDay USA has announced that it is extending its military prep school scholarship program criteria to include children of soldiers and National Guard members with a successful deployment record in the Global War on Terror (GWOT). NewDay USA scholarships were initially strictly reserved for children of Gold Star families and the children of a 100 percent disabled combat Veteran.

"Overseas deployments put a huge strain on military families, both personally and financially. We want students to get a great military education and not have their families worry about the cost during such a time," said Rear Admiral Thomas Lynch USN (Ret.), Executive Chairman of NewDay USA.
 
In early December, NewDay USA awarded its 50th full military prep school scholarship to Kathryn Lilyanne Bailey to attend Georgia Military College Preparatory School (GMC Prep) in Milledgeville, Ga. Kathryn, a sixth-grader at the school whose father is a 100 percent disabled combat veteran, was awarded a scholarship that will pay her tuition until she graduates the 12th grade. Her brother Jacob is also a recipient of this scholarship.
 
"We are just blown away by the generosity of NewDay USA and their support of our soldiers and their families," said Brigadier General Randall Simmons, Commanding General of the Georgia National Guard. "Providing these scholarships does so much for our deployed soldiers, who now have increased confidence that their children are getting a quality education back home so they're able to focus on the mission at hand. We couldn't be more thankful for NewDay's generosity and expanding their scholarship program to the children of GWOT Veterans."
 
Kathryn Bailey was awarded the scholarship just as the Georgia National Guard 48th Infantry Brigade Combat Team (IBCT) was about to be deployed to Afghanistan. The scholarship is good for the entire time she attends GMC Prep.
"As the beneficiary of a JROTC education, I know personally how important such an education is in building America's leaders of tomorrow," said NewDay USA Chief Executive Officer Rob Posner. "Expanding our scholarship program to the children of those who have served our country during the Global War on Terror (GWOT), is one of the most important things we are doing as a company."
 
The NewDay USA Foundation has now awarded 50 full scholarships to students at 13 military prep schools in 11 states, including 13 scholarships to GMC Prep School cadets since 2016. NewDay USA has also donated $1 million to the GWOT Memorial, currently under construction in Washington, D.C.
 
"It's absolutely incredible what these scholarships do for these families," added Lieutenant General William B. Caldwell, IV, President of Georgia Military College. "We are incredibly appreciative of NewDay USA. Their commitment to Veterans is so special."
