MHS Seniors Recognized as November Rotary Students of the Month
Milton Hershey School seniors Gabrielle Symons and Lester Huang were recently selected as the November 2018 Rotary Students of the Month. They will each receive a certificate from Rotary, will be recognized at a special luncheon, and are eligible for a scholarship.
Gabrielle Symons is from Plattsburgh, New York and enrolled at MHS in eighth grade. Since her arrival, Gabrielle has been highly active in a variety of programs, including the Mock Trial team. She also serves as an MHS Student Ambassador and vice president of Girl Scouts. Gabrielle is a member of the school’s National Honor Society and Spanish National Honor Society, and she traveled to Peru in the spring of 2017 through the school’s Multicultural and Global Education program. She hopes to attend Georgetown University next year and plans to study government with the hope of becoming a corporate lawyer.
Lester Huang is originally from Brooklyn, New York and enrolled at MHS as a 10th-grader. Lester has challenged himself with a rigorous courseload that includes multiple honors-level courses and AP classes. Lester is a member of the baseball team and serves as secretary of communications for the Executive Branch of the school’s Student Government Association. He also participates in the Miltmakers Club, which is a technology-driven service innovation club, and is a member of National Honor Society and Spanish National Honor Society. Lester hopes to attend Princeton University or Columbia University to study integrated business engineering. His goal is to help lower-income communities with new innovations or technologies.
Milton Hershey School partners with the Rotary Club of Hershey to create leadership and community service opportunities for MHS students.
Please congratulate these seniors when you see them on campus!
