Ryan Patrick Named 2014 THON Overall Chair

With #OverallWatch finally concluding late last night at around 1:30 a.m., Ryan Patrick was selected to follow Will Martin as THON Overall chair for 2014.

Patrick began his THON journey in 2011 as the THON chair for his fraternity Beta Theta Pi, and then as a Merchandise Captain in 2012. This year, Patrick served as the Merchandise Overall (@Merch_FTK) for the record-breaking THON 2013.

The THON Overall is selected each spring after a series of interviews by the previous Overall, advisor Barry Bram, Four Diamonds Director Suzanne Graney, and members of the outgoing Overall committee.

We at Onward State would like to congratulate Ryan on the honor. We’re looking forward to another record-breaking THON 2014!
