Thursday: National High Five Day

For Tom Pennella, a junior studying Business Management, this Thursday is the realization of three years of work making people aware of National High Five Day. For the past two years, Pennella has been running a free lemonade stand to recognize this day.

“I just paid for it out of my own pocket,” Pennella said, adding, “It was just a fun thing to do.”

This year, Pennella’s lemonade stand is being sponsored by The LION Radio Station. Along with the free lemonade at the HUB lawn from 12-4 p.m., there will be a free drawing for two tickets to the Pitchfork Music Festival.

“I’m glad The LION is sponsoring it…because I’m broke,” Pennella said.

National High Five Day was started by a couple of students at the University of Virginia in 2002. According to their site, the event has spread across the nation and even around the world.

Tell all of your friends and make people aware by giving high fives to your fellow students and teachers. To many, it may seem like a joke, but it has a different meaning for Pennella who has brought this event to Penn State for the past three years.

“It’s a nice way to bring the student body together,” he said.
