Penn State trustees elect new leadership

Updated:

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - A potato farm executive is the new chairman of Penn State's Board of Trustees.

The university's governing body elected Keith Masser as its new leader at a meeting Friday. The Schuylkill County resident was serving as vice chair.

Masser takes over at a critical juncture as the school deals with the lingering fallout from the child molestation scandal involving retired assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

Masser replaces Karen Peetz, who left the leadership post after a year. Peetz had cited time constraints after being promoted to president of Bank of New York Mellon.

Lawyer Stephanie Deviney, of Glenmoore, was elected vice chair. Masser and Deviney were the only candidates for their respective positions.

Among their other top priorities is the search for school president Rodney Erickson's replacement.
