One week after naming him as the only finalist, the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia went ahead Wednesday and hired Dr. Jaimie Hebert as president of Georgia Southern University. Hebert is slated to take the reins at Georgia Southern July 1, according to the Board of Regents’ emailed announcement. Georgia Southern, the 20,500-student Carnegie doctoral-research university in Statesboro, home of the Eagles of Sun Belt Conference sports, is similar in size to Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas, where Hebert has been serving as provost and vice president for academic affairs.
