C. W. Pettigrew Center

The annual Spring Training and Recognition Program affords the Office of Sponsored Programs and Fort Valley State University the opportunity to acknowledge FVSU faculty and staff for their efforts and successes in grantsmanship. For those who have considered writing, but have shied away for one reason or another, are often encouraged by the accomplishments of successful faculty and staff members recognized at this program.

The conference’s keynote speaker is Major General (ret.) Robert McMahon, president and chief executive officer for Robins Air Force Base 21st Century Partnership.

Maj. Gen. (ret.) McMahon joined the Partnership in September 2012. He was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio and is a 1978 graduate of the Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs, Co. He held numerous command positions during his 34-year Air Force career, the final landing him at Robins Air Force Base as the Commander of the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center. He retired in June 2012. He holds a Master of Science degree in maintenance management. Among his numerous decorations are the Distinguished Service Medal with two oak leaf clusters, Defense Superior Service Medal and the Legion of Merit with two oak leaf clusters.

The 21st Century Partnership’s largest responsibility is to actively support the current missions of Robins Air Force Base and ensure that both the base and the Middle Georgia community are best postured to accept new missions for the base. In addition, he works closely with local communities, state and federal governments and military leaders to make sure Robins Air Force Base remains relevant and viable well into the future.
