Election process opens for Penn State trustees
STATE COLLEGE -- The latest election for Penn State trustee members may serve as another barometer of how well the university is recovering from scandal in the minds of alumni.
Only a housecleaning will do, some of the school's more vocal alumni say, in order for them to regain trust in school leadership after the turmoil that started in 2011 with the arrest of former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky on child sex abuse charges.
The response by trustees and other university leaders to the crisis has been a point of contention for groups of alumni, former players, faculty, staff and residents since the scandal's first frantic days. The dismissal of coach Joe Paterno, who was fired in a late-night telephone call, remains a sore topic a year after his death on Jan. 22, 2012.
