Now is the time for the board of trustees …
To demonstrate leadership and defend our great school.
To practice openness and transparency in deeds as well as words.
To be a body of inclusion rather than one of exclusion.
To recognize that trust is earned in two directions.
To correct Mark Emmert for his many misstatements that have harmed our school.
To invite Louis Freeh to Penn State so that the community can query him regarding his conclusions.
To invite former U.S. Attorney General and Pennsylvania Gov. Dick Thornburgh and former FBI profiler James Clemente to Penn State so that the community can query them regarding their assessment of the Freeh report.
To respond to former Jerry Sandusky prosecutor Frank Fina’s statement that he “found no evidence” that Joe Paterno covered up Sandusky’s crimes by publicly repudiating the conclusions of the Freeh report.
To put back the statue and wall in their rightful place outside of Beaver Stadium.
To work to ensure that we leave Penn State a better place than we found it.
To join our 600,000 alumni who never lost the “We” in “We are.”
If we are truly interested in real healing, then we should demonstrate the courage and leadership that our roles as trustees require in order to serve the best interests of our great university. And if the Penn State community did not distrust us, then …
To formally honor the 61 years of service that Joe Paterno gave to Penn State.
