Goodyear's Peterson named to YSU Board of Trustees



Michael A. Peterson of Massillon, director of Global Investigations and Security Services for Goodyear, has been named to the Youngstown State University Board of Trustees by Gov. John Kasich.

Peterson, whose nine-year term runs through 2025, replaces Sam Grooms on the board. Grooms submitted his resignation from the board earlier this year, saying that he and his wife have assumed official residence in Florida. State law requires trustees to live in Ohio.

Peterson, who earned a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from YSU and played on the football team, has nearly three decades of experience in security consulting, human resources and investigative services, including work as a court investigator, intensive probation supervisor and law enforcement officer.
