The Penn Stater Daily — March 18, 2014
In position: The Lady Lions earned their fourth-straight bid in the NCAA tournament, nabbing the No. 3 seed. The team faces No. 14 Wichita State on Sunday at the BJC. And despite the photo (above), shared on Twitter by WJAC’s Matt Maisel (@Matt_Maisel), Maggie Lucas wasn’t the only Lady Lion psyched about last night’s seed announcement; the photo was taken mere milliseconds before the rest of the team burst into cheers. Check out a video of their reaction here.
Good conversation: Vietnam War correspondent and Bronze Star Medal recipient Joseph Galloway is the guest on Thursday’s “Conversations from Penn State,” the WPSU-TV series. Galloway, whose career as a military and war correspondent spans more than 50 years, is also the best-selling author of “We Were Solders, Once… and Young,” on which the 2002 Mel Gibson flick “We Were Soliders” was based. The episode will air at 8 p.m. Thursday on WPSU-TV, and online at http://conversations.psu.edu.
Powerful partner: Some good news coming from Penn State’s partnership with PCAR (Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape), now in its third year: more than 30,000 people affiliated with Penn State have been trained to identify and report child abuse in the past year, and prevention efforts—including more training programs, conferences, and support groups—have been bolstered throughout the state. For more information on Penn State and PCAR’s efforts to prevent child abuse, check out Penn State News‘ coverage here.
