When I attended a recent Penn State football game, I was surprised to see on the Jumbotron screen that Koch Industries is now one of the corporate sponsors.
As a Penn State alumna, former employee, Nittany Lion Club member and part of a Penn State family, I am disturbed that on the same giant screen the Koch Brothers co-opted a traditional Penn State cheer. “We are … Koch” is not who I am.
It is time for Penn State Athletics at our land-grant university to reject a corporate sponsorship so directly tied to a political action committee with an overt bias against public education.
