Celebrating the Class of 2020

If this time in history has taught us anything, it is to embrace and celebrate the positive things in our lives. On Saturday, June 13, Milton Hershey School will hold a Virtual Commencement Ceremony, with elements including:

  • Personal recognition of each senior
  • Student speeches
  • A senior class video packed with memorable moments

We look forward to celebrating our seniors and acknowledging this milestone achievement. Read more about our soon-to-be graduates and their remarkable journeys.

Milton Hershey School students in the Class of 2020 gather together at the beginning of the 2019-20 school year for the annual Senior Pinning Ceremony.

Rising Above: A Year of Stories

Vibrant moments of student success and positive spirit tell the story of the Class of 2020. We reflect back on celebrating the MHS 110th anniversary at Founders Feast last fall, sharing art and music to lift spirits during tougher times this spring, and more.

These experiences forever will be a part of us. And, we will remember that even when we are apart, we are together.
