Longtime Board of Trustees Office Director to Retire

Paula Ammerman, who has served as the Penn State Board of Trustees office director for 21 years, is set to retire this June, according to a Centre Daily Times report last week.

“To be a small part of transforming the lives of literally thousands of students and individuals who we touch in some small way is really — it’s a pretty awesome experience,” Ammerman said to the CDT.

Ammerman is responsible for managing the Board of Trustees meeting schedules and office. She does the roll call at the beginning of meetings and has only missed on meeting in her 21 years on the job.

“It’s been a real honor to be part of the fabric of the institution, and I hope I’ve left it in a better place,” Ammerman said to the CDT.

Ammerman’s position is confirmed by the Board of Trustees annually and is essential for the operation of the governing body. The job has been posted on http://www.psu.jobs/Search/Opportunities.html, with a salary ranging from $54,900 to more than $115,000.

Ammerman will remain with the University until the conclusion of the alumni trustee elections.
