The lion is finally on the bench at Penn State Wilkes-Barre

Lehman TWP. — The Penn State Wilkes-Barre may be over 100 years old, but the “Lion Bench” that unveiled on campus on Friday was as new as they came — and got it. It took me a long time to put it in.

In a brief comment, Student Union President Ben Sebra pointed out how long it would take. He was in second grade when SGA began to get one of the iconic photography props. He is now senior.

Prime Minister Dale Jones expressed pride in getting the bench, but took years involving several different students who led the project, admitting that “it’s been a long time behind.”

Cebula, Jones and others have stated that the bench is more than a place to take pictures with the life-sized Nittany Lion mascot. This is a symbol of the PSU community to which all students belong.

Cloe Mazzatosta, a sophomore in Plains Township, has earned the right to be the first person to sit on the bench next to the lion when others take pictures.

“This is really great,” she shone when people recorded the historic moments of the past. “I’m really honored!”
