Founders Hall Lights Illuminated for Opening of School Festivities

In celebration of Milton Hershey School 2020-21 school year’s Opening of School festivities, Founders Hall will be illuminated with a variety of bright blues, navy, and white lights to represent the promise of a new school year and the theme: Our Future in Focus.

From Wednesday, August 12 to Tuesday, August 18, the MHS landmark will serve as a beacon of hope and opportunity as the MHS community focuses on the bright futures of our students.

The lights are another element of the School’s Opening of School activity which began Thursday, Aug. 6, with the launch of the theme. Since then, students and staff have been participating in socially-distanced activities with their student home, getting creative, and setting their focus on all they can achieve together this year.

Follow along with MHS’s Opening of School festivities on social media with the hashtag #MHSSpartanStrong.
