Penn State To Announce New President On Friday



Penn State has its new president lined up, and sources said the university will announce the new leader Friday.
 
The board of trustees will convene on campus for a special meeting about a personnel matter, said spokeswoman Lisa Powers.
But sources said the meeting will be to approve the hiring of the next president.
 
A group of 12 trustees has been working to select the successor to President Rodney Erickson, who has said he’d retire by June 30 next year.
 
Previously the university’s provost, Erickson took over the presidency on Nov. 9, 2011, after Graham Spanier was fired by the board of trustees days after the Jerry Sandusky child abuse scandal rocked the university.
 
Penn State used the headhunter firm Isaacson Miller in the search for Erickson’s successor, and officials said they would look at candidates in higher education and private industry.
