PS4RS Announces Top 6 Candidates in Endorsement Process

The most important Board of Trustees endorsement has whittled down the field of 32 to the final six (about half sought their endorsement). Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship, a semi-controversial group aimed at reforming the Board of Trustees, announced its six finalists for its endorsement this weekend, who were chosen by a diverse selection committee.

PS4RS members will choose between Rudy Glocker, Bob Jubelirer, Gavin Keirans, Albert Lord, Alice Pope, and Vincent Tedesco III to award its three coveted endorsements. The group has been a bit of a kingmaker in recent history, as all three of its endorsed candidates (Bill Oldsey, Barbara Doran, and Ted Brown) won the Board of Trustees alumni election by wide margins last year.

At the end of the week, PS4RS leadership will host and record a private town hall meeting with the six candidates. The video will be posted online after the meeting. PS4RS membership will then vote from March 10 to March 15 to select its three endorsed candidates.

Here are the video bios for the top 6:
