MHS Fourth-Graders Visit The Hershey Company During Founders Week
On Monday, Nov. 12, Milton Hershey School fourth-graders visited The Hershey Company to learn more about the life of chocolate magnate, Milton Hershey.
Students interacted with Hershey Company employees at various stations and learned about the history of The Hershey Company and important events that molded Milton Hershey’s life as a businessman and entrepreneur. In addition, students were able to taste test Hershey’s products and learn how to describe those products in an advertisement.
The visit coincided with the school’s annual Founders Week celebration. During this week, the MHS community celebrates the signing of the school’s Deed of Trust by Milton and Catherine Hershey on Nov. 15, 1909.
