Eric Shrive Elected President of Uplifting Athletes

The goal of raising funds for the Kidney Cancer Association remains the same, but the Penn State Chapter of Uplifting Athletes is officially under new leadership as senior guard Eric Shrive will serve as president for the 2013 season.

Shrive previously served as vice president for the past two years where he raised nearly $70,000. His efforts have earned him a spot as one of the 7 finalists for the Uplifting Athletes Rare Disease Champion award with votes being counted through the end of the month.

“I am honored to be elected president and look forward to another successful year with Uplifting Athletes and helping raise awareness for rare diseases,” said Shrive in a press release.

Other officer positions to go with Shrive’s presidency include:

  • Vice president — Senior tackle Adam Gress
  • Head of operations — Senior center Ty Howle
  • Secretary — Sophomore cornerback Da’Quan Davis
  • Fundraising chairman — Freshman tight end Adam Breneman

Highlighted by the annual Lift for Life event in the summer, these five along with the rest of the football team will work to exceed last year’s record total of $110,374 raised.
