Hershey Bears Ice Hockey Team Visits Milton Hershey School
The Hershey Bears Ice Hockey team and coaching staff recently visited Milton Hershey School to learn more about the program for lower income children. Players and coaches toured the campus, ate lunch with students and met the Spartan Ice Hockey team.
“We’d like to get our players more involved with Milton Hershey School,” Hershey Bears Head Coach Troy Mann said. “We want our players to meet with students and understand what the school is all about.”
Students shared their backgrounds and experiences at MHS with the players and coaches. It was an opportunity for the players to gain more awareness about the school and share their life as professional athletes with MHS students. It also was a chance for students to build their character and leadership skills through a public speaking experience.
At MHS, students are encouraged to discover their values and learn the skills they need to become successful leaders and compassionate, global citizens.
It is the 80th anniversary season for the Hershey Bears.
