Opener Feed “Penny”
Have you met Wright State’s student giving mascot, Penny the Philanthropist? Penny is a green piggy bank that was delivered to all residential students during move-in day and is handed out to commuter students throughout the year. The goal is to throw your spare change in your “Penny” piggy bank and turn it in at any SPC or SAA event to support the scholarship or program most meaningful to you. Don’t have a Penny? Contact Becky Valekis at 937-775-3958.
