Joe Paterno Will Remain in Brown Hall of Fame

After a review from the Brown Athletic Hall of Fame Board of Directors, it was announced on Saturday that Joe Paterno would remain in his alma mater’s Hall of Fame.

In a statement released by the Board of Directors, they said in the choice “not to remove Paterno from the list of Brown’s Hall of Fame athletes, the Board of Directors did not intend to diminish the tragic events that occurred at Penn State toward the end of Coach Paterno’s career. It sought, rather, to acknowledge the recognition of the achievements for which it elected Paterno to the Hall of Fame nearly 35 years ago.”

Finally, an organization that practices rational and researched decision making instead of grandstanding to the media.
