Students interrupted the Michigan State University Board of Trustees meeting this morning in protest as the board voted to name Former Michigan Governor John Engler as interim president.

Lou Anna Simon resigned from the position last week amid the Larry Nassar sex abuse scandal. Bill Beekman was named acting president before Engler was voted in.

After the board meeting, Engler held a news conference to address the media. 

As he left the meeting, some students and attendees chanted "shame, shame, shame."
