Lily Pevoto Named THON 2023 Executive Director

Just weeks after THON Weekend wrapped up, the organization already has its sights set on next year’s fundraiser. To kick things off, THON named Lily Pevoto its executive director for THON 2023.

Pevoto, a rising senior who’s enrolled in Penn State’s Integrated Master of Accounting program, served as THON 2022’s communications director. She previously worked as a supply logistics captain for THON 2020 and as a Rules & Regulations committee member for THON 2019.

“Through my volunteer experience in Penn State THON, I have found individuals who are equally passionate about finding small ways to improve the lives of children and families impacted by childhood cancer,” Pevoto told Onward State last fall. “I have also learned that all of these small acts can amass into an unshakeable sense of hope and community for everyone who touches this organization.”

Pevoto’s first task in her new position will be selecting the other directors to fill out THON 2023’s executive committee over the coming weeks.

Congratulations, Lily!
