Power List


Congratulations to Georgia Southern President Brooks Keel, Ph.D., and six others with ties to the University who earned a spot on Georgia Trend magazine’s 2015 list of “Most Influential Georgians.” The January issue also featured University System of Georgia Chancellor Hank Huckaby on the cover as the “Georgian of the Year.”

Alumnus and Georgia Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Chris Clark (‘92) made the power list, as did alumnae Hala Moddelmog (‘79) and Carol Burrell (‘80). Moddelmog is the president and CEO of the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce and Burrell has been president and CEO of Northeast Georgia Health System in Gainesville, Georgia, since 2011.

Other Eagles on the list include Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle and Edna Branch Jackson, the mayor of Savannah.

The magazine says a great deal of debate goes into narrowing the field to the final 100, but the list reflects the realities of leadership, power and influence in Georgia, and added it believes “Some of the 100 wield their influence in the limelight; others work behind the scenes. But all of them impact the daily lives of Georgians everywhere.”
