As Rodney Erickson winds down his term as president of Penn State, I want to thank him for taking on the task on a moment’s notice at a time when his academic career was winding down.
He could have said no, but instead he stepped into the breach and helped guide Penn State through difficult times. Penn State has survived and become stronger in the past two years.
By extension, the entire staff and faculty also deserve praise. They have performed above and beyond and have helped make Penn State a better university.
I continue to be proud of my affiliation with Penn State.
