DuBois - Seth Franco, a member of the Harlem Globetrotters and Christian speaker spoke at the Penn State DuBois Winter Pep Rally Wednesday Night.  Franco travels throughout the US and internationally, using his unique basketball-handling routine as a platform to share his message.  He said, "The difference between dreaming about success and achieving it is hard work and faith." 

 

Penn State DuBois athletic teams and their coaches were recognized at the event, as well.

 

There was also a Pie in the Face event to benefit THON, the Penn State dance marathon dedicated to battling childhood cancer.  Participants paid a small fee to throw a pie in the face of a volunteer.  Volunteering to take the pies in there faces were campus athletic coordinator Ken Nellis, Student Government Association President Alex Angstadt, assistant wrestling coach Steve Manginell, and basketball player Justin Alvarez.

 

The event was organized by members of Christian Student Fellowship (CSF) and members of the Blue and White Society.
