PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - Eric Barron, a former dean at Penn State and president of Florida State University, was named president of the Pennsylvania university still reeling from the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
Penn State's Board of Trustees voted unanimously on Monday to make Barron, 62, the school's 18th president with an annual salary of $800,000, and the potential for a $1 million bonus if he stays for five years. He starts on May 12, replacing Rodney Erickson.
