UNIVERSITY PARK - Penn State has confirmed the Board of Trustees have scheduled a meeting for Friday morning. Multiple board members tells WTAJ News they believe the meeting is to name a new university president. Members of the board had recently talked about their desire to name a president soon. The University says the personnel decision is the only item on the meetings agenda.

The new president will take over for Rodney Erickson, who was named president in November of 2011 after former president Graham Spanier was forced out as part of the Jerry Sandusky Sex Abuse Scandal.

Erickson had previously said he planned to leave the school no later than June 30th, 2014.
