New Georgia Southern president makes first campus visit

STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) -Georgia Southern University’s next president made his first visit to the school since being named to the post this week.

Dr. Kyle Marrero and his family met with media on Saturday morning as he outlined what he sees are the strengths and challenges for the university.

He’s currently the president of University of West Georgia. He thanked interim president Shelley Nickel, saying that he’ll work to continue bringing together the Statesboro, Hinesville, and Armstrong campuses and using the university to help grow the region as well.

“What we want to do at the end of the day is make sure everybody sees Georgia Southern as this regional presence as one university serving the region,” said Dr. Marrero.

Marrero officially takes over April 1.
