JoePa Honored in House of Representatives Today

A resolution introduced by our very own Rep. Glenn Thompson honoring Coach Joe Paterno for his 400th win and a lifetime of achievements, both on and off the field, passed the House today.

In a news release, Thompson said,

“Coach Paterno has given a lifetime to Penn State, the game, and his players — on and off the field. His charitable spirit has been unsurpassed and he leads by example. This is why I was also proud to nominate him for the Presidential Medal of Freedom earlier this year.”

If you remember, Thompson was also the one who introduced a resolution honoring THON in the House earlier this year. This truly makes him Mr. Penn State Resolution. It’s unclear what else he’s been up to down there in Washington.

Getting back to Paterno though, this is just another honor for a great man who doesn’t bask in his success and is always looking towards the future.

Check out the video of Thompson speaking about Paterno below:

Senior Writes Final Column

Senior columns, with all their melodrama and platitudes, usually leave me eye-rolling and shaking my head with a vigor usually reserved for study abroad blog posts. But, as I graduate a week from today, I figured I should give it a go myself. Rather than discuss the origins of Onward State like Evan,  I’d just like to briefly thank a few individuals who have defined my Penn State experience.
