Newly-elected Penn State Board of Trustee Anthony Lubrano; adoptees' right to biological parents' medical history

Written by Scott LaMar, Smart Talk Host/Executive Producer | May 8, 2012 5:28 PM

Radio Smart Talk for Wednesday, May 9:

One of the most anticipated events after the six tumultuous months since former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky's arrest for allegedly sexually assaulting and molesting young boys was the university's Board of Trustees election.  The results were finalized last week and three new board members were elected, including our guest on Wednesday's Radio Smart Talk, Anthony Lubrano.

Lubrano was critical of how the Board of Trustees fired legendary Coach Joe Paterno in the fallout of the Sandusky scandal last November.  College football's all-time winningest coach was terminated in a brief telephone call after the Board voted unanimously to fire Paterno last November.

During his campaign, Lubrano demanded the Board of Trustees offer an apology to the Paterno family.  We'll asked how he plans to proceed and what other issues he would like to see addressed at the university.

Also, as part of witf's on-going Facing Cancer Together initiative, Wednesday's show will focus on the rights adoptees in Pennsylvania have to obtain information about their biological parents' medical histories.

Appearing on the program will be Amanda Woolston, founder of the group Pennsylvania Adoptee Rights.
