If You THON It, You Should Put A Ring On It

As most of us are listening to the line dance, one THON dancer is now hearing wedding bells.

Sarah Collier, a senior studying electrical engineering, is dancing for Society of Women Engineers (SWE) after holding leadership positions and being named their fundraising director this year. When she was picked to dance in November, her boyfriend wanted to make this a THON she would never forget.

Jace Toner, a graduate of Penn College, is enlisted in the military and wanted to propose to Sarah in a special way before he is deployed.

In the early hours on Saturday of THON 2014, all of the members of SWE stood tall with giant posters that spelled out “Sarah, will you marry me?”

The Bryce Jordan Center cheered around them, as family members of both Sarah and Jace looked on, and Jace got down on one knee. Sarah said yes!

Megan Kraus, a former SWE dancer noted that Sarah is passionate about SWE and does so much for the Roth and Sullivan families. Kraus said that the proposal was a collective group effort, and the hardest part was keeping it all a secret.

Congratulations, Sarah and Jace!
