Board of Trustees Candidates Announced
Earlier this afternoon, the 86 candidates running for the three alumni seats up for election on the Penn State Board of Trustees were publicly announced. There has been a large interest in the BOT this year — only six candidates ran for the alumni seats last election — as the board has been heavily scrutinized over the last several months. Names were drawn at the Penn Stater Hotel today to determine the order that the candidates would appear on the ballot. The diverse group of candidates features former football players, businessmen and a retired Navy Seal.
Candidates were required to obtain 50 nominations from Penn State alumni to be considered eligible for the upcoming election.
Here is the list of candidates as they will appear on the ballot:
