MHS Students Attend “Game Changers” Empowerment Breakfast
On Saturday, July 28, Milton Hershey School senior Sydney Tierney and junior Tyler Garbart attended the first-ever “Game Changers” Empowerment Breakfast along with several MHS staff members.
The event was organized by alumna Kijuanna Wilson-Ewell ’95 and her husband who founded Beat the Streets Ministries in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania—an organization working to make an impact on the local community by inspiring, uplifting, and empowering others.
During the breakfast, several individuals were recognized as “game changers” for their contributions to the greater Harrisburg area and their ability to rise above their circumstances to make a difference.
MHS alumna Deesha Dyer ’95 served as the keynote speaker and shared her inspirational journey to becoming White House Social Secretary for the Obama administration in April 2015. She also discussed her current work as executive director of beGirl World—a Philadelphia-based organization that empowers teenage girls through global education and travel.
MHS students enjoyed fellowship with Kijuanna and Deesha after the event and reflected on their shared connection as MHS brothers and sisters.
Milton Hershey School alumni serve an important role in the MHS community as role models for current students and generations to come. MHS encourages students to build meaningful relationships with alumni and support one another throughout life.
