Then and Now: Founders Week
Milton and Catherine Hershey communicated their vision for Milton Hershey School in the Deed of Trust signed on Nov. 15, 1909. This significant date has been celebrated at MHS for over 110 years through annual traditions and community gatherings.

Founders Feast 2020
This year, the Founders Feast was held safely in student homes due to COVID-19. The meal featured Milton Hershey’s favorite foods and included a student activity inviting students to put their futures in focus by setting goals much like the founders did in 1909.
Founders Hall Turns 50
This year, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Founders Hall. MHS looks back at the vision for the building and how it was brought to life. The building was dedicated on Milton Hershey’s 113th birthday on Sept. 13, 1970.
