Finalist named for president of Georgia Southern University

By The Associated Press

STATESBORO, Ga. (AP) — University System of Georgia officials have announced the sole finalist for president of Georgia Southern University.

News outlets report University of West Georgia President Kyle Marrero will replace former GSU president Jaimie Hebert. The university system's chancellor and its Board of Regents chairman said Wednesday that Marrero was the finalist for the job at the college in Statesboro.

Chancellor Steve Wrigley and Board Chairman Don Waters say Marrero's accomplishments since becoming president of the school in Carrollton in 2013 include overseeing record enrollment growth.

Marrero says he's thrilled for the new opportunity.

The board is required to wait at least five business days after naming the finalist before it holds a confirmation meeting. One hasn't been announced yet for Marrero.

Shelley Nickel has been GSU's interim president since Hebert resigned last year.
