Do you know that there are about 20,000 known species of bees? Lil Sherz does! Between the critters of Bee Keeping Club and Penn’s many traditions, Lily is always caring for everyone and everything. So if you ever find that you need candy, a Penn Traditions logo umbrella or an extra large Penn Traditions logo umbrella, she’s your girl. Also, Lily wrote an entire paragraph in one of her papers last year on beignets. Speaking of food, if Lily were a food, she’d be spicy pasta salad because she has a calm demeanor, but if you bring up a topic she’s passionate about––a list which is not limited to traditions and bees––she shows her zest. So prepare yourself to get stung by this fire alto with her rendition of some Bishop Briggs, a singer few can live up to.


Fun Facts: I can tie a toga in 10 seconds. I love spicy food. I’m obsessed with high school musical.
I listen to pretty much everything except rock music (it’s a new genre for me give a lil more time).
When I am not singing I like saving the bees and crushing on Troy Bolton.
