Milton Hershey School VPA Creates Thankfulness Chain
This November, Milton Hershey School Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) program created a “Thankfulness Chain” to showcase what students are most thankful for during this season.
“The Thankfulness Chain was a great way for Senior Division VPA students to pause and remember the things in their lives, at MHS and at home, that mean the most to them,” said Jeremy Ulrich, MHS Senior Division Director of Bands. “The visible chain represents the strength that MHS demonstrates to keep these words of gratitude in our hearts and minds during this unique school year.”
The VPA department hopes that this display helps the MHS community realize the amazing opportunities that MHS provides every day.
Trenete Davis, an MHS Senior Division Band student, hopes this project spreads positivity to all in a time where it may be hard to stop and be thankful.
“I wrote on my chain that I’m thankful for making it this far without giving up,” Trenete said.
Jada White, an MHS Senior Division Art student, shared her thankfulness for health and safety.
“I’m most thankful for the safety and well-being of my family,” Jada said. “Knowing that they are alive and healthy reminds me of how crucial it is to wash my hands and be cautious of others.”
The MHS community can virtually share in this project by thinking of things they are thankful for. This Thanksgiving, MHS students will safely celebrate the holiday with a special meal in their student homes.
