Milton Hershey School Graduating Seniors Take a Walk Down Memory Lane
This week, Milton Hershey School students in Elementary and Middle Division lined the hallways of their school buildings as seniors who enrolled in first- through eighth-grade walked down memory lane, high-fiving their younger peers. With almost a month until graduation, this event allows graduating seniors time to reflect on their MHS journey—where they started and where they’re going.
This tradition is more than just a celebration for our graduating seniors, though. It’s also a reminder to our younger students that they too will one day be preparing to graduate from MHS.
“For our younger students to be able to see what they can achieve in the future is important,” shared Tara Valoczki, MHS Middle Division Principal. “They often look up to their older MHS brothers and sisters to see what is possible, and this event helps them get a glimpse into their future selves.”
As seniors prepare to graduate, they are reminded of the gift of opportunity that our founders Mr. and Mrs. Hershey gave them during their time at MHS. The Hershey’s legacy is carried out every day in the staff and teachers that go above and beyond to support our students—the same effort that brought some seniors to tears during this impactful moment.
