MHS Elementary Students Build Connections with Military Alumna

As part of Milton Hershey School’s annual Community Day at the start of the school year, elementary students from student home Woodside gave back to their community by assembling care packages and writing letters to MHS military alumni.

When U.S. Marine Madison Sottasante ’15 received the students’ letter, she quickly replied and used the opportunity to share her military experience with the younger students. The group chatted with Madison via video where they introduced themselves, asked insightful questions, and listened to her describe her MHS journey.

“It was great for our students to see what the possibilities are [post-graduation],” said Denise Gore, a houseparent at MHS. “They were very excited about the fact that she wanted to talk to each of them and get to know them.”

Madison encouraged the students to take advantage of the opportunities at MHS and shared advice on overcoming obstacles. By the end of the chat, they planned a time for Madison to visit with the students in the upcoming months.

“By sharing her journey at MHS and beyond, Madison encouraged the girls to be grateful and make the most of the gift of MHS,” Gore added. “Hearing about her achievements has inspired them.”

Milton Hershey School alumni serve an important role in the MHS community as role models for generations to come. MHS students are encouraged to build supportive relationships with alumni who are invested in their success before and after graduation.
