Committee Spotlight: Hospitality

I flagged down Sarah Hefner and Courtney Hawkins of Hospitality, who talked a bit about THON and about what they do.

1. How did you get involved with THON?

Sarah: I joined at the beginning of this year, I interviewed for Hospitality, and got on that way. I didn’t join last year and after seeing it, I knew I wanted to be a part of it.

Courtney: I was the same way; I didn’t know about it coming in, and I knew I wanted to be a part of it after seeing it.

2.What is your team doing this weekend?

Sarah: I like helping out the dancers. We bring them food and drinks, and you can tell they really appreciate it.

Courtney: The line dance.

Sarah: They sing so many songs. We love the line dance. All the Penn State songs, Taylor Swift songs–at all Taylor Swift songs our committee would all gather round.

3. What’s the coolest thing you’ve seen so far this weekend?

Sarah: The kids, especially the talent show makes you realize what it’s all about.

4. What is your favorite part of THON?

Courtney: Well, experiencing, seeing the family–all along basically we wrote letters and sent care packages to them so to finally meet them is great.

5. If you could be a dinosaur, what kind would you be?

Sarah: I’d probably be, like a bronchiosaurus? Isn’t that a vegetarian, so they’re friendly?

Courtney: What’s the one that flies? A pterodactyl.
