Penn State Trustee Chair Resigns

The chairman of the Penn State Board of Trustees, Steve Garban, resigned Thursday night—the first of the Board to quit amid the Jerry Sandusky sex-abuse scandal. Since the scandal erupted last year, four have left the 32-member Board of Trustees—three when their time expired and one was voted out by alumni. Graban has been criticized after it came to light that former university president Graham Spanier gave Graban a heads up about the Sandusky presentment days before charges were filed. Graban has been on the Board of Trustees since 1998 and also served as the university’s senior vice-president / treasurer. He graduated from the university in 1959.
