Cynthia E. Anderson begins her duties today as the seventh president of Youngstown State University. The oval-shaped pin on her left shoulder is a gift from her staff, marking her appointment as president. On one side are the letters YSU, and seven garnet stones are on the other. The seven stones signify that she is the seventh president of the university, and garnet is her mother’s birthstone, Anderson said.
