Milton Hershey School to Host Second Poverty Talks Livestream Conversation
Childhood poverty is a national crisis in America. When Milton and Catherine Hershey founded a home and school for orphans in 1909, they understood that in order to lead fulfilling and successful lives, children need their basic needs met like food, clothing, medical care, and a stable home environment. Today, Milton Hershey School’s whole child approach to education has changed the lives of thousands of students and alumni.
During the 2021-22 school year, Milton Hershey School will host several livestream conversations called Poverty Talks. In the series, hosted by Lisa Scullin, MHS Vice President of Communications, you’ll hear from MHS thought leaders on our mission and how we help break the cycle of poverty for our students by educating and nurturing children from low-income families.
The second conversation, Poverty Talks: Engaging with Parents/Sponsors at Milton Hershey School, will be held live across MHS social media on Wednesday, Feb. 16 at noon. Lisa will be joined by several MHS experts:
- Scott Gregory – MHS Admissions Counselor
- Sarah Pearson – MHS Family Relations and New Student Transition Counselor
- Chris Rich – MHS Senior Manager of Student Health Services
- Cindy Spinner – MHS Admissions Counselor
- Heather Teter – MHS Senior Manager of Student Health Services
- Ododo Walsh – MHS Senior Director of Home Life and Student Leadership
