The heart and blood of today’s Dance Marathon lies partially inside the Morale Committees’s captains.

The members of the Morale Committee are specially picked for their ability to inspire positive attitudes in themselves and others.

“It [being a Moral Captain] always takes being a role model, always knowing what it’s for. There are people out there that aren’t as fortunate as us. Always have a good heart, always have a good time,” said sophomore Tristan Barnes.

The Morale Captains have to find their inspiration first before they can inspire others.

“I believe I put more than my heart into this. I put my blood, sweat, and tears. My inspiration was having fun and knowing that I was doing something good,” said junior Garry Posey.
