Five Things About President Hebert

5 Things about President Hebert Banner

#5 Favorite Movie

“​My favorite movie is ‘The Wizard of Oz.’ The movie has sentimental value. When I was younger, classic movies were carried by television stations once per year. My father wasn’t much of a TV watcher, but when this movie came on, we would always sit and watch it as a family. Every time I see it, I’m reminded of those times.”

“My favorite dessert is my mom’s homemade fig tarts.”

“I think my favorite Georgia Southern tradition is Weeks of Welcome. It’s a time for the entire University to reflect on our rich heritage and share those traditions with our newest Eagles.”

“Really? My BLUE couldn’t be truer!”

“I think the most important skill a university president needs to have is the ability to listen. Everything I do, all of my successes, and the success of the institution depend on my ability to hear and understand the needs and concerns of those within the University and the needs and demands of our many constituencies.”
