Devon Werkheiser Serenades The BJC For The Third Year In A Row

Devon Werkheiser, star of the old Nickelodeon “Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide,” returned to the BJC for his third year to perform at THON.

The former actor’s parents met at Penn State, and he told everybody he, “credits the university for his existence.” After taking a selfie with the crowd, he told everyone just how happy he is to be returning to the BJC, informing the dancers that they will remember this weekend for the rest of their lives. As he finished his speech, he praised everyone because, “life is about what you can give.”

He started off his show by performing a song he wrote himself. Before singing the whole thing, he taught the chorus to the crowd so that they could sing along. The overall song of the theme was about giving love to others, a message that correlated with his opening speech. Likewise, he did a “We Are,” chant in the middle of the song, after which he said, “That never gets old!”

Although he only performed one song, Werkheiser insisted that he would be here for much longer. As he left the stage, students on the floor chanted, “Ned! Ned! Ned!” Based on that, it’s pretty safe to say he’ll be a popular guest on the floor.
