Homecoming Honorary Grand Marshal Named
The 2010 Homecoming Executive Committee announced yesterday that Intercollegiate Athletics Director of Marketing for the Olympic Sports Jeff Fisher has been named the 2010 Homecoming Honorary Grand Marshal. The Honorary Grand Marshall title is given to a Penn State community member who contributes to the community but is not generally recognized for their work. The committee will choose a Grand Marshal at a later date. Past Grand Marshals have included Valarie Plame, Franco Harris, and Horace Ashenfelter.
Fisher told the Collegian that “he was ‘taken aback’ by being named to the position, he cited his work with a number of athletic teams and clubs and the Student Athletic Advisory Board (SAAB) as a possible reason for his nomination.”
Homecoming Public Relations Director Caitlin Rush said that the committee “chose Jeff because of his years of dedication to the University. He consistently goes out of his way to help students and improve Penn State. Jeff works tirelessly to promote the tradition and pride of Penn State athletics. By allowing student interns to take on real responsibility he offers an invaluable learning experience.”
Congratulations to Jeff Fisher on his appointment.
