Alumni Awards and Recognition

Milton Hershey School’s first alumni recognition program began more than 50 years ago with the Alumnus of the Year Award.

Today, our talented and inspiring alumni are recognized through three separate award programs:

  • Alumnus of the Year—awarded once every year to recognize an alumnus who is making a difference in the world.
  • Alumni Achievement Awards—three Alumni Achievement Award categories, including Academic Excellence, Career Accomplishment, and Community Service.
  • Induction into the Spartan Hall of Fame—recognizes graduates for their athletic achievements or talents in the visual and performing arts while they were students.
