Former BoT Chairman Steve Garban Resigns

Former chairman of the Penn State Board of Trustees, Steve Garban, has resigned, the Centre Daily Times reports.

The news comes only a week after the Freeh report’s release. Garban has since been heavily criticized for not relaying Sandusky-related information to the entire board.

Garban and ex-vice chairman John Surma decided not to run again for their respective positions in January.

Karen Peetz sent out this memo on Thursday evening:

Earlier today I accepted Steve Garban’s resignation from the Board of Trustees. I want to sincerely thank him for his many years of service to Penn State University and for the leadership he exhibited today.

Steve dedicated his adult life to Penn State, devoting more than 33 years of service to help make this a better institution. Few love this University more than Steve, and his passion and commitment to the University have never been more apparent than they are today. This selfless leadership exemplifies the culture shift we are working hard to create.

I will miss Steve and his many contributions to the Board, but I understand and respect his reasons for leaving.

Sincerely,
Karen B. Peetz
