MHS Girls Grace Event Helps Students Build Character and Confidence
Over the weekend, 202 female MHS high school students attended the second annual Girls Grace lock-in event. The event featured keynote speakers and activities to inspire students to pursue their dreams with confidence.
“Girls Grace is an investment in [our female students’] development toward becoming strong, successful young women,” said MHS Student Program Leader and Girls Grace creator Sharice Johnson. “By attending the event, they discover more about themselves, learn how to empower and support their peers and find time for self-reflection, and have some girl fun.”
More than 50 MHS staff participated in the event, along with 20 alumnae who returned to campus to share their experiences and perspectives as successful women.
“All of our MHS staff and alumnae who attended the event made a significant impact on our students,” said Johnson.
Students attended workshops focused on growth mindset and social intelligence. They also listened to a panel of speakers during the Business Women workshop. The panel included founder and CEO of Nuts About Granola Sarah Lanphier, Hershey Entertainment & Resorts Director of Attractions and the Guest Experience Laura Woodburn, award-winning radio broadcaster Shaashawn Dial, designer and entrepreneur Shenna Lansanah, and business owner Taylor Glessner.
Students also enjoyed activities to keep them energized and encourage creativity. The MHS landscaping team helped students create “positivity rocks” that will be placed on campus to inspire others.
