Gov. Tom Corbett got a cool reception when he addressed a central Pennsylvania university’s graduating class.
The (Harrisburg) Patriot-News says the that when the governor stepped to the microphone Saturday at the Millersville University ceremony, about a dozen students turned their chairs away from the stage.
About half of the faculty members wore yellow pins saying “I support public education,” and a few also turned their chairs away.
A black armband protest that had been discussed on campus failed to materialize.
Some students and faculty members had objected to Corbett’s appearance, citing proposed cuts in funding for state universities.
