Joshua Arledge

Milton Hershey School alumnus Joshua Arledge ’15 is pursuing his passion to work with the deaf population. Currently, he is a sophomore at Gallaudet University, the only liberal arts college in the world specifically designed for deaf people, studying Elementary Education. He is one of the few students on campus who can hear. Joshua’s goal is to become an elementary school educator and teach deaf children.

In 2015, Joshua was honored for his exemplary volunteer service with the deaf community with a Certificate of Excellence from The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, and with a President’s Volunteer Service Award granted by the program on behalf of President Barack Obama. Joshua created an instructional program at Milton Hershey School called “Sign Time,” to teach elementary-aged students sign language and help them develop a better understanding of the deaf community.

Joshua also was chosen as one of four delegates to represent the United States in Paris, France this past summer for the IOU Respect 2015 International Cultural Exchange. The program brought together participants from the U.S., Egypt, France, Germany, Lebanon and Tunisia to “discover unique cultural differences and appreciate their undeniable similarities.”


“The biggest thing that separates people is a lack of knowledge and respect, and I want to be someone who can help bridge that gap,” said Arledge. “Diversity isn’t just tolerated in the Milton Hershey School community – it is appreciated. Experiencing this harmony has inspired me to learn even more.”
