Committee Profile: Merchandise
If you have ever tried buying some THON gear at THON then you know how busy this committee well and truly is. In the process of trying to buy a shirt (I still don’t have one. Can someone hook me up please? -Hasan) I met two members of a Merchandise committee – Justin Klaus and Adam Covino. They were kind enough to take some time out to give me an interview.
OS: What does your committee do?
Adam: We handle all the sales of THON related gear.
Justin: We hand out and separate all the shirts for all the committees. We organize all the THON-related merchandise since October.
OS: How long have you been involved with THON and why did you get involved?
Justin: This is my first year involved with THON. I joined so I could give back to the Penn State community.
Adam: This is my first year as well. I initially came as a freshman and saw how everyone comes together for such a great cause and knew I had to get involved.
OS: What is your favorite part about THON?
Adam: For me it has to be working with my committee. It is just such a great experience.
Justin: I have to agree.
OS: How long have you been here this weekend?
Adam and Justin: It has not been too bad for us this weekend. We have been here about 20 hours. Merchandise is not sold in the late nights.
OS: What song do you hope they play this weekend?
Justin: Down by Jay Sean. [laughs] They have played it probably 20 times this weekend.
Adam: Bad Romance by Lady Gaga. (Hey! That’s in the line dance! – Hasan)
OS: How would you rate your dance skills?
Adam: Nothing short than a 10/10.
OS: What was the most awesome thing you have seen all weekend?
Justin: It has to be how happy the kids are. I saw kids on the floor running around and squirting EVERYONE with their squirt guns. Watching them laugh and smile – it’s just great.
Adam: It has to be the dance off competition at the Pep Rally.
OS: If you were a dinosaur, what kind would you be? And why?
Adam: Pteradactyl. It would be great to fly.
Justin: Velociraptor. I would be really quick. Definitely compliments my dance skills.
