CANFIELD, Ohio (WYTV) – A local doctor who helped lead Youngstown State University for a decade passed away.
Dr. Sudershan Garg was chairman of the university’s Board of Trustees when they hired Jim Tressel as president.
Dr. Garg attended more than 475 meetings as a trustee.
When Dr. Garg left the board in 2015, he said the university was in better shape than when he started serving 10 years earlier.
Dr. Garg was a nationally-recognized oncologist who immigrated from India in 1967.
He died at home in Canfield this week.
He turned 81 earlier this month.
