He knows it sounds cliche, but after more than four decades working at Penn State, University Budget Officer Steve Curley is certain that it's the people he will miss most when he retires at the end of December. "Everybody says that, but that's what it's going to be," Curley said. "We have an outstanding staff here in the budget office, and it has been a pleasure to work with them. We also have a very good senior leadership team, deans and chancellors whom I've had a chance to work with over a long period of time." Curley will leave Penn State after 41 years, having first joined the staff of the controller's office in 1970, shortly after graduating from the University with a degree in business administration. In 2006, Curley was appointed university budget officer, where he has overseen a staff responsible for developing, implementing and controlling Penn State's annual operating budget, with an office including sections for budget, information resources and network services.
