A year of no surprises
Dr. Brooks Keel reflects on his first year as president at Georgia Southern University
Dr. Brooks Keel joins football fans at Paulson Stadium on Saturday, October 30, 2010, to watch the Eagles battle Samford.
It's been almost a year since Dr. Brooks Keel assumed his role as Georgia Southern University's 12th president on Jan. 1, 2010. He's had the tough task of slashing a budget three months into the job, but also the joy of Georgia's Board of Regents approving a full engineering program for the university. All in all, he said, "it's been a year, frankly, of no surprises." "...In all sincerity, one of the biggest surprises I've had since coming here is that there really haven't been that many surprises," Keel said.
