Will Martin Named THON 2013 Overall Chairperson

On February 19, cards revealing $10,686,924.83 sent joy through the Bryce Jordan Center and signaled the end of THON Weekend 2012. And now three and a half weeks later, the Overall Chairperson for THON 2013 was been named. Shortly after midnight, THON adviser Barry Bram announced on his Twitter account that Will Martin will assume the role that Elaine Tanella held for THON 2012.

Martin’s past THON experience consists of being an OPPerations committee member for THON 2009, an OPP captain for THON 2010 and 2011, and the OPP Overall this past year. He is a Communications Sciences and Disorders major, and was featured in Onward State’s series which profiled each 2012 Overall Committee.

Congratulations are in order here as THON always looks to the future without taking a break.

Only 337 days until THON 2013!
