Adeline Mishler, Diego Santos Receive Third-Ever ‘Guide State Forward’ Award

Seniors Adeline Mishler and Diego Santos were named the recipients of Penn State Homecoming’s third-ever “Guide State Forward” award during the organization’s’ virtual parade livestream Friday night.

“I can’t imagine two individuals who more fully embody the Penn State spirit,” Homecoming Court Relations Director Ella Whartenby said. “These two truly do Guide State Forward!”

Mishler is a senior from Johnstown, Pa. studying business management, civic and community engagement, and legal environment of business. She’s involved in the University Park Undergraduate Association, serves on the Student Fee Board’s Steering Committee, and is a member of the Lion Caucus’ executive board.

Mishler is also a member of Delta Sigma Pi and interns with both Penn State Athletics and Penn State’s Office of Government and Community Relations.

Santos, a first-generation college student, hails from Douglassville, Pa. but was born in the Philippines. He’s majoring in biochemistry and molecular biology, minoring in microbiology, and working his way toward a certificate in international science.

Santos is involved with Lion Ambassadors and currently serves on Penn State’s Select Presidential Commission on Racism, Bias, and Community Safety. He’s also involved with Homecoming as a photography captain and leads a photo/video committee.

2018 marked the first time the award was presented after Homecoming implemented it as a replacement for crowning a king and queen, coinciding with its gender-neutral court. After Homecoming announced this year’s court, seniors voted to decide who would receive the prestigious honor.

Congratulations, Adeline and Diego!
