MHS Senior Becomes Third Student in School History to Win Mid-Level Round of Rotary Speech Contest
Three Milton Hershey School students recently competed in the mid-level round of the Rotary Four-Way Speech Contest. MHS senior Desmond Primus was awarded first place and earned a spot in the Rotary International District Championship in April. During the district competition, he will compete against four other mid-level winners from across the Central PA Rotary District which includes more than 70 schools. The top prize is a $1,500 scholarship.
MHS juniors Jose Mendez-Montero and Ty’Jhon Hull also participated in the mid-level competition and achieved third and fourth place. All three students participate in the school’s Law, Public Safety, and Security career pathway within the school’s Career and Technical Education (CTE) program. It’s one of 12 pathways designed to provide students with specialized, hands-on experience in their fields of interest.
Desmond is the third MHS student to win the mid-level competition and compete in the district championship. This is the school’s fifth year being involved with the speech contest.
