Mixed somewhere in the crowd will be Penn State head coach James Franklin, who will be a guest of U.S. Representative Glenn Thompson from Pennsylvania.
“With the beginning of a new year, we are filled with a sense of optimism and possibility. The State of the Union offers us the chance to reflect upon the previous year and provides us with a preview of the challenges and opportunities that we face together,” stated Rep. Thompson. “Given these sentiments, it’s an honor to have Coach Franklin as my guest for this occasion.
Ahh yes. That's the reason. Of course it is.no comments
