Meet the Nittany Lion 

Location: Mt. Nittany, PA

Connection to Four Diamonds: I am the Symbol of Penn State.

Years of Involvement: Since THON's inception.

How are/were you involved with Four Diamonds and THON? 
I bring joy to Four Diamonds Families and support our THON student volunteers and dancers.

Why is the partnership between Four Diamonds and THON important?
The partnership between Four Diamonds and THON blesses Penn State students with the privilege to get to support and know such amazing families. 

What is your favorite memory? 
My favorite memory was seeing two lion cubs' eyes light up as they saw me. It showed me both how much they meant to Penn State and how much Penn State has meant to them.

What is your dream for Four Diamonds and THON over the next 40 years?
My dream is to be on the floor dancing in celebration with the Four Diamonds Families and the Penn State Community. Until then, I'd love to see the Penn State Community continue to grow closer while finding new ways to support those fighting pediatric cancer.
