THON Featured on Good Morning America

Screen Shot 2014-02-18 at 12.59.27 PM

In what has become an annual tradition in recent years, THON was featured on Good Morning America this morning. Seven Penn State students and volunteers, including PR Director Dana Giacobello, joined GMA this morning to talk THON three days before the big weekend.

Lara Spencer, a Penn State graduate and former THON dancer, is a current Good Morning America host and helped lead the discussion. There was so much Penn State love on the set that one of the show’s behind the scenes producers, a recent Penn State alumna, was called out in front of the camera. The discussion was topped off with a live 2013 Line Dance performance.

Unfortunately, the video won’t embed, but you can check it out here. Skip to 7:30 for the THON stuff.

We dance in three!
