10 High School Students Shared Their Intentions for 2019

The Power of New Year Intentions, Not Resolutions

This year, instead of focusing on New Year’s resolutions, the Milton Hershey School community is setting intentions for the year. Inspired by our Opening of School Assembly in August of 2018, living with intent is doing something with purpose. It’s feeling empowered to give back with the intention of making a positive impact on others.

From committing to their grades and forming new friendships to sharing their positive spirit with the local community, we asked 10 high school students to share their goals and intentions for 2019.

Here’s what they said:
