Meet the THON 2013 Overalls: Mike Wellner (R&R)

As THON 2013 creeps closer each day, I compiled a little background information on each of the overalls. Today features Rules & Regulations Overall Mike Wellner. Also, make sure to watch the R&R Committee of the Week video at the end of the post!

Mike Wellner, Rules & Regulations

Current Year: Senior
Major(s)/Minor(s):
 Supply Chain Management/Spanish, International Business
Fun Fact:
 When trying to conquer my fear of heights, I actually made it much worse when bungee jumping.

1. Why did you want the position of Overall, and why for the committee that you now lead?

I wanted to be a member of the Overall Committee for THON because helping those in need is my passion. The students at Penn State are in an amazing position to do this and they have proven year after year that they can achieve amazing things. Ever since I became involved in THON freshman year as a Rules and Regulations Committee Member, I have desired to do more for this organization and to inspire THON’s volunteers to help lead this organization in the future. I have learned so much in my years of involvement with THON and I believed that this experience along with my passion would make me a valuable member of the Overall Committee.

2. What are you most looking forward to in THON 2013?

There are so many things that I am excited for this year. It is an amazing opportunity to serve on the Overall Committee and experience everything that it is. I am most excited about the opportunity to interact first-hand with the children and families and really establish a personal relationship with those towards whom my efforts are directed. I also am excited to see the amazing things the Overall Committee can accomplish. I think we are in an amazing position to build on the past and make THON 2013 the best THON to date.

Jim’s Army & Navy: The Greatest Store Ever

For those of you who have ventured onto the west side of Beaver Avenue, there is a good chance you have passed by Jim’s Army & Navy. If you are one of those people, your first thought when passing by Jim’s was most likely, “What the hell is going on in this store?” When a store’s window display boasts handcuffs (they even come in pink), switchblades, throwing stars, machetes, other swords, and ammunition, you really have no choice but to be utterly confounded. Little did I know that I was about to walk into the greatest store ever.
