MHS Seniors Recognized as February Rotary Students of the Month

Milton Hershey School seniors Ripley VanHoosier and Hunter Hanley were recently selected as the February 2019 Rotary Students of the Month. They will each receive a certificate from Rotary, will be recognized at a special luncheon, and are eligible for a scholarship.

Ripley VanHoosier is from Erie, Pennsylvania and enrolled at MHS in eighth grade. Since her arrival, Ripley has flourished through her academic achievements, leadership qualities, and efforts to serve our school community. Ripley has been highly active in a variety of school programs including National Honor Society, tutoring in the writing center, and Brain Bee Club. In addition, Ripley participated in Milton Hershey School’s Multicultural and Global Education program’s trip to Iceland to participate in a Global Student Leadership Summit. Ripley plans to attend Clarion University next year to major in psychology with the hopes of becoming a forensic psychologist.

Hunter Hanley is from Buffalo, New York and enrolled at MHS in third grade. Hunter has challenged himself with a rigorous course load for the past few years that has included multiple honors, college, and AP-level courses. Beyond academics, he is involved in a variety of school programs including varsity football, Student Government Association, and National Honor Society. In the spring of 2018, Hunter traveled to Thailand as part of a cultural immersion experience through Milton Hershey School’s Multicultural and Global Education program. Hunter hopes to attend college in the fall to study business with the goal of working in finance.

Milton Hershey School partners with the Rotary Club of Hershey to create leadership and community service opportunities for MHS students.

Please congratulate these seniors when you see them on campus!
