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.

Three Words: For the Glory

When I sat back one night in January thinking about my time at Penn State, I tried to come up with a single word that would adequately describe my experiences here. As I attempted to determine what that magic word might be, my mind began to grasp the absurdity of that challenge. How could I possibly distill four years of my life, countless friendships, and untold numbers of memories, down to a single word? An impossible task to be sure. So instead, I took the easier road and went with three words: For the Glory.
