Former Henry Ford Health CEO is named MSU trustee
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A former health executive has been appointed to the governing board at Michigan State University.
Gov. Rick Snyder announced the appointment of Nancy Schlichting. She fills a vacancy created by the resignation of George Perles.
In a statement Friday, Snyder says Schlichting “can be a catalyst for change” at MSU, which still is struggling with the sexual-abuse scandal of sports doctor Larry Nassar. Her appointment as trustee was announced on the same day that a special prosecutor accused MSU of stonewalling an investigation into the school’s handling of Nassar.
Schlichting was chief executive at Henry Ford Health System in Detroit. She wrote a book about leadership titled “Unconventional Leadership.”
