My name is Shane Goodwin and I am the new VSU FCA Director. My wife Shanel and I are very excited about the future in Valdosta. There can’t be a better place to serve as FCA Director than in Title Town. We are excited to be here. I can't wait to get to know any FCA friends, staff and family that I haven’t met.
We recently left Lenoir City, Tennessee where I finished my eleventh year teaching and sixteenth year coaching football. I am originally from Oneonta, Alabama and Shanel is from Mountain Brook, Alabama. After graduating high school in 1994, I served in the in the Marine Corps. I graduated from Jacksonville State University with a degree in Drama. After college I studied at The Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute in Hollywood, CA. Three years later, I met Shanel, my wonderful wife and the amazing mother of our daughters. I later attended Middle Tennessee State University for Graduate school where I earned a teaching certificate in Special Education. I have served in youth ministry, mission work, and spent ten years acting. On June 1st I packed up my family and 37 years of life experience that is filled with God’s amazing grace and moved to Valdosta where I proudly serve the coaches, their families, athletes, and athletes’ families of VSU for the glory of God. Our family can’t wait to meet you and to serve you. God bless you and Go Blazers!
