Members of the alumni watchdog group PennStaters for Responsible Stewardship have endorsed three candidates for election to Penn State University's board of trustees.
Two incumbents are up for re-election while a third seat -- which is designated for an alumni -- remains vacant. The incumbent trustees, attorney Stephanie Nolan Deviney of Exton and orthopedic surgeon Paul Suhey of Boalsburg, served during the fallout from the prosecution of former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky and the firing of former coach Joe Paterno and are opposed by the watchdog group.
Instead, PennStaters endorsed candidates Edward "Ted" Brown, III; Barbara L. Doran; and William F. Oldsey.
The group's members, which now number approximately 18,000, selected the candidates during a week-long online primary election from a short list of six candidates, who had been selected from the original field of 29 applicants.education - state - psusports
