Milton Hershey School Drives Through the Homestead Light Show
On the third day of Christmas… Homestead Light Show
Milton Hershey School President Pete Gurt ’85 and his wife, Jane, provided a Winter Wonderland to our students and Home Life staff. Decorated in red, green, white, and blue holidays lights, the Homestead—where our home and school began—was open for a private drive-thru light show the evening of Monday, Dec. 7.
Each year, the Homestead is neatly decorated for the holidays, which is a long-standing tradition at MHS. This year, the MHS grounds and structural trades crews stepped it up to make the lighting even more spectacular than years prior.
“We’ve planned a series of surprises to give our students a magical holiday season,” Gurt said. “Every student deserves to feel appreciated, cared for, and special.”
The Homestead light show drive-thru also included a visit from Santa, Mrs. Claus, and Sparty. As the student home vans exited the route, each home received a box of sweet treats from the President’s Office.
