High School Students Seek College Advice from MHS Alumna
Rosemary Savage ’08 recently visited with Milton Hershey School students who are enrolled in Chemistry II classes. After receiving her bachelor’s degree in cell and developmental biology, she is currently enrolled in medical school at West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine and is set to graduate in spring 2017.
Rosemary is completing her clinical pediatrics rotation at the MHS Health Center with the goal of becoming a family medicine physician. Her experience as an undergraduate and graduate student, as well as her knowledge of science and medicine, inspired MHS students who are considering future careers.
“I hope I gave students some good information and encouraged them to go in the right direction,” said Rosemary. “I’ve stopped thinking of medical school as an achievement because I’ve been so immersed in it, so it was nice to talk to students who were amazed by [my education].”
MHS students asked Rosemary for study tips and time management advice. She also described the process of being accepted into medical school and the biggest challenges she has overcome throughout her education.
By maintaining strong connections with MHS alumni, Milton Hershey School provides students with a large support system to guide them before and after graduation. Learn more about how our Graduate Programs for Success (GPS) Division is helping current students and graduates achieve success.
