Dr. Randell E. Trammell

Chief Executive Officer (CEO)

Dr. Trammell has long been involved youth development.  He holds an undergraduate degree in Religious Education as well as a Master in Business Administration from Reinhardt University.  In 2014, he completed his Doctorate in Education with an emphasis in organizational leadership and communication. That same year, after seeing a dire need for resources and support in the area of civics education in Georgia, he developed the concept of the Georgia Center for Civic Engagement.  In 2017, Dr. Trammell officially launched the Center as a 501c3 nonprofit becoming our founder and President & Chief Executive Officer.

In October 2021, Dr. Trammell was recognized as one of Georgia Business Trend's "40 Under 40" award, which honors the state’s best and brightest leaders.

Dr. Trammell is a visionary and passionate leader who is nationally recognized in youth civic education and development.  He is also active as a volunteer with many organizations.
