“The most rewarding experience I have during a student’s enrollment process is seeing students who enter MHS with a lack of self-esteem become self-assured young men and women. Being able to watch these kids grow, embrace challenges and excel in ways they did not even realize would be possible… [that’s] what it’s all about.”

“Although sharing acceptance with families over the telephone is a wonderful experience, what I find most meaningful is watching students grow and develop once they are on campus. Whether it’s sports, drama, music, student government association, or an awakening of an academic field of interest or career path, I am proud and humbled to have been a small part of a student’s journey toward becoming the individual they were meant to be.”

The joy of a child and their family on graduation day is an emotionally uplifting experience for  every  Admissions Counselor.”

“The most rewarding experience is providing significant support to a family who might not otherwise make it through the process of applying to and enrolling at Milton Hershey School. This is particularly gratifying when working in conjunction with professionals who believe so strongly that an opportunity like MHS could not only change this student’s life but might be the best opportunity this child has at making their own great life. This reward is reaped when that student reaches  great heights at MHS, and there is a powerful feeling that MHS was a primary catalyst for this child’s success.”
