Lehigh Valley student appointed to University Board of Trustees
Peter Khoury, of Schnecksville, Pa., was recently appointed to the Penn State University Board of Trustees by Governor Tom Corbett. Khoury, who attended the Lehigh Valley campus, is now a senior at University Park and will serve on the Board until July 1, 2014.
The tradition of the governor appointing a student to Penn State's Board of Trustees began roughly 20 years ago. As a trustee, Khoury will serve on a committee of the Board and participate in all activities of the Board as the representative voice of the students.
"I hope that I am able to do a significant amount of outreach to students all across the University, not only student leaders and those working in student government, but really try to understand the concerns of students who do not always have the opportunity to share their thoughts and ideas," said Khoury. "Penn State students are the best and brightest out there, and I hope to work collaboratively with students to help address concerns and further propel Penn State in becoming the most student-centered University in the country."
Khoury has an extensive background in student leadership having served as two-time student chair of the University Faculty Senate, former Penn State Lehigh Valley Student Government Association vice president, former Council of Commonwealth Student Government (CCSG) vice president, and current CCSG president. Upon graduation, Khoury plans to attend Penn State's Dickinson School of Law.
