Joel Wright Age: 37 Title: Director of EEO & Title IX, Georgia Southern University Professional

After graduating from Statesboro High School, Joel joined the United States Marine Corps. He

served in the Marines for nearly 13 years. During that time, Joel earned a B.S. in Political Science from Georgia Southern and his Juris Doctor from Michigan State University, College of Law. At Georgia Southern, he serves as the director of Equal Opportunity & Title IX. He is a current Board member of Statesboro Main Street Farmer’s Market and past Board Chairman of the Hearts and Hands Clinic. Joel and his wife, Amy, are members of Trinity Presbyterian Church and have six children, Ellie Jane (11), Lucy (10), Lizzie (8), Jack (6), Henry (3) and Charlie (1).


“My long term goals include continued spiritual growth with a focus on

being the best husband to my wife and father to our children that I can be. My father, perhaps channeling the late-great Erk Russell, once gave me the advice to ‘do the next right thing,’ and I use that advice on a daily basis. My goal is to utilize my education and experience to best serve the students, faculty, and staff during this exciting time for Eagle Nation.”

Congratulations we are so proud of you! Top 20 Under 40 2017
