Robert Bowsher, Candidate for the Penn State Board of Trustees

Prior to November 2011, our alma mater was enjoying a lot of success. The Wall Street Journal had ranked Penn State #1 for graduates best suited for the world of work, industry-sponsored research dollars continued to pour into the University, and a thrilling 10-7 victory over Illinois earned Coach Joe Paterno his record-breaking 409th victory. As President Graham Spanier gave Coach Paterno a beautiful plaque honoring him as the Winningest Coach and an Educator of Men, all seemed happy in Happy Valley.

Then the storm hit. Life hasn’t been the same since for all of us in the Penn State community.

But thanks to so many diehard Penn Staters doing what they can to help, Penn State is beginning to emerge from this terrible storm. We have seen signs of resurgence on all of the campuses, on the football field, and across our great nation. More than ever, WE ARE Penn State and the world is taking notice.

For that reason, I firmly believe the time has come to prepare for the end of the storm. Every major reform movement has featured a big change that took years to formulate, but manifests itself in what seems like lightning speed. The Penn State reform movement is on the same trajectory that the anti-Apartheid movement and the same-sex marriage movement followed. I don’t know exactly how that big change will manifest itself for us, but I’m convinced it’s coming and it’s coming sooner than we think.

My campaign’s symbol is the rainbow. In addition to representing my open and transparent life, the rainbow is a meteorological phenomenon that occurs at the end of a storm: the more intense the storm, the brighter the rainbow. And no storm has been more intense for the Penn State community than the one that began in November 2011.

By electing people like me, we alumni can help Penn State reach the bright future we all want for our beloved alma mater. This website will tell you more about my qualifications and stances. For the outstanding job he did on this website, I commend Todd Alexander who designed 2013 election winner Barbara Doran’s website and trustee Ryan McCombie’s 2012 website.

Please support Robert Bowsher by Voting for him in the upcoming election.
