Lexi Labott

Shout out to Lexi Labott! Lexi has always been a strong, intelligent, and beautiful young lady. Her hard work and dedication is recognized by membership in several honor societies. She is passionate about her color guard and winter guard teams, often thinking about new routines to learn and help teach. Her own rifle skills showcased a 7 rotation toss! She also enjoyed softball, especially when she was pitching. Her kind heart became fuller each week as she tutored her Homework Helper buddy and watched him grow. She participated in several other clubs that rounded out the amazing person she has become. And all of this as she dealt with new roommates this year!  We are so proud of Lexi and excited for the new adventures and accomplishments that are headed her way. After some extra puppy time in Nashville, she will be headed to Virginia Tech in the fall! 

A note to Lexi: We hope your dreams take you to the highest of your hopes, to the windows of your opportunities, and to the most special places your heart has ever known.

We love you, Dad, Mom, and Brodie

Devon McGill

We are so proud of you and your accomplishments!  For over 10 years, you have managed being a competitive gymnast training 25 hours a week while balancing school and this thing called life.  We often joked that you were paid in medals and bruises…and a few crutches and medical boots too!!!  The real payment for your hard work is lifelong friendships with your teammates, a coach that stuck by your side since you were 7 years old, the ability to manage your time while being an honors/AP student and the grit to get back up again, literally, each time you were down.  You have always been one to set your sights on a goal and work as hard as necessary to achieve.  In this next phase of life, you are entering it with the right playbook and certainly the right skills to continue to be successful.  Trust yourself, trust your gut, continue to GET BACK UP, and when in doubt…trust us to help guide you in the right direction.  Penn State University Smeal School of Business is lucky to have you.

Love-  Mommy and Bobby
