It has been a great honor to serve on the Penn State University board of trustees. Four generations of my family have attended Penn State dating back to my grandfather, Bob Higgins ’19.

As a 1979 graduate of Penn State and captain of the football team, I care passionately for our university and for all who bleed blue and white, for all to whom the words “for the glory” and “success with honor” are more than just slogans.

The Penn State board of trustees now has incredible opportunities to effect change in many ways: to find and hire a new president, to establish policies for open and engaged university governance, to manage the cost of a Penn State education for students, and to prioritize building/facility maintenance, among others.

Penn State operates on a $4 billion annual budget. We have 96,000 students, 24 campuses, and more than 25,000 employees who depend on the board of trustees to make sound and forward-thinking business and strategic decisions that support the work of the administration.

The challenges we face moving forward will require principled individuals with integrity who are not afraid to make tough decisions in the face of criticism. It is imperative that the trustees who assume this role are able to build consensus amid a wide variety of diverse backgrounds, experiences and opinions.

I want to continue to give back to the university and a community that has given so much to my family and me. I would appreciate your vote!
