About Courtney Gordner ” Sharing What’s important in this viral world.” is her mantra… Choosing to go to Penn State will always be the greatest decision I’ve made in my life. I graduated from PSU with a degree in Public Relations from the College of Communications, and a minor in Psychology. Aside from learning lots about my field, Penn State taught me that football is fun to watch, you can have 10 best friends, it’s okay to eat pizza for breakfast and to always stand by your traditions. The greatest thing about Penn State (aside from their happy hours), is their Dance Marathon (THON). I became overly passionate about this cause and worked countless hours to help better the organization. THON provides emotional and financial support to children battling cancer and their families. THON also funds research in hopes of one day finding a cure for pediatric cancer! I planned fundraisers, oversaw a committee of 350 students, logged all inventory and handled some of the finances for their merchandise. More relevant to my major, I used my PR skills as a part of the Media Relations committee to gain awareness about the cause. I’ve always been involved in philanthropies, but THON is something special, For The Kids.
