Fuller receives educational delay from Army

Charles Fuller of Newnan is one of four cadets at the University of North Georgia who have received an educational delay – awarded through a highly competitive process – from Army Cadet Command to pursue advanced degrees when they graduate in May.

Fuller is pursuing a degree in kinesiology with a concentration in health and fitness from UNG. He has been accepted to the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at Brenau University.

"We are proud of these cadets seeking additional education that will allow them to better serve their fellow soldiers once they become Army officers," said Lt. Col. Wesley Pirkle, executive officer and director of instruction in UNG's military science department.
