Penn State Student Governments Release Statement
The three Penn State student governments — the University Park Undergraduate Association, Council of Commonwealth Student Governments, and the Graduate Student Association — released a joint statement this afternoon regarding the Jerry Sandusky verdict. The statement was signed by the three presidents — Courtney Lennartz, Benjamin Clark, and Wanika Fisher, respectively.
The student governments of Penn State University grieve for those who have been victimized by child sexual abuse. We commend the courage and strength that it took for the victims to come forward and testify. We hope that the verdict provides a sense of justice for those who were affected including the victims, their families, and the community at large.
As student leaders, we will remain vigilant in our efforts to maintain the values upon which our
University was founded.”
