Community Invited to Winter Pep Rally, Harlem Globetrotter to Speak
DuBois – A winter pep rally with a special guest speaker is planned at Penn State DuBois, and students are asking community members to join them in supporting campus sports teams while enjoying a fun, family friendly event.
Seth Franco, a member of the Harlem Globetrotters and Christian speaker will offer a special presentation and speech. Franco travels throughout the US and internationally using his unique basketball-handling routine as a platform to share his message.
Penn State DuBois athletic teams and their coaches will be recognized at the event, as well.
"We would like to recognize all the varsity athletes of Penn State DuBois and the coaches for all of their hard work and dedication," said student organizer Kayla Barr. "We feel that this is an awesome way to bring everyone together and to get students pumped up with school spirit."
Also at the pep rally, a Pie in the Face event is planned, with campus faculty and staff members supplying their faces. A 50/50 drawing is also planned. Both will benefit THON, the Penn State dance marathon dedicated to battling childhood cancer.
The event is organized by members of Christian Student Fellowship (CSF) and members of the Blue and White Society. The Blue and White Society will hand out Pep Rally T-Shirts to the first 100 people through the door.
The pep rally is planned for 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 19, in the gymnasium at Penn State DuBois.
