With the culmination of Homecoming Week exploding in Beaver Stadium during this Saturday's clash against Purdue, we wanted to give a lucky Penn State student a chance to ride shotgun in our brand new Penn Stated-out Chevrolet Sonic during the homecoming parade on Friday, Oct. 14 at 6 p.m.
So how did Macy Golder get to be the lucky winner? Well here was the deal... we held a twitter contest and announced that we would select one Penn State student to ride shotgun with us in the parade and all they had to do was follow @PSURoadWarriors on twitter and retweet one of our MANY tweets about the parade. At midnight on Wednesday we randomly selected our winner and @Magic_of_Macy was the lucky one.
Macy is a junior at Penn State studying sports broadcast journalism with a dream to one-day stand on the sidelines with an ESPN microphone in hand, interviewing the best of the best. Macy comes from a family of ALL Penn Staters and is proud to continue the tradition of bleeding blue and white.
"I love every minute of being a Penn State student and I wouldn't change it for the world," Golder said. "I am so excited to have won this competition. It is definitely something I will be able to look back on and say, 'wow, what an experience that was to be a part of a once in a lifetime opportunity. No one else will be able to say they got to ride shotgun in the front of a Chevy Sonic in the 2011 Homecoming Parade."
We know that Penn State fans will be saving seats on College Ave., early on Friday morning and we are so grateful for everyone's support. Grab that hot chocolate, throw on your Nittany Lion ear hats and keep an eye out for us in the Chevy Sonic... we promise, you wont be able to miss us. The parade starts at 6 p.m. and for more information check out the homecoming website.
