McCombie Won’t Seek Re-Election To Board Of Trustees

Alumni-elected Trustee Ryan McCombie will not seek re-election this year, he announced Sunday night. McCombie was first elected to the Board in July 2012.

Nominations closed Sunday for those hoping to fill the three seats up for renewal. Incumbent Anthony Lubrano also announced he would not seek re-election and in doing so endorsed the third Trustee whose term is up, Rob Tribeck.

McCombie graduated from Penn State in 1970 and is a retired U.S. Navy Captain. He’s now an independent business consultant, and serves on the boards for several national firms, according to his Board of Trustees biography.

“Since joining the Pennsylvania State University Board of Trustees almost six years ago, I have been rewarded with some of the most interesting, tumultuous, gratifying and challenging experiences of my volunteer life,” McCombie said. “There was never a shortage of demands or struggles to address. Almost immediately after taking office, I lodged a plea against the unwarranted sanctions the NCAA had imposed
against Penn State. This event influenced and shaped much of my time on the Board.

“Nonetheless, I also had the opportunity to serve on the Academic, Audit and Risk committees; serve as vice chair and subsequently chair of the Outreach committee; and serve on the Executive Committee and numerous subcommittees. I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn from many great minds and also contribute along the way.”

Candidates need 250 nominations to be included on the official ballot. Those who have reached that threshold haven’t yet been announced. Ballots will be sent to alumni via email on Tuesday, April 10, and elections will close at 9 a.m. Thursday, May 3.
