Philadelphia Inquirer’s Upside Showcases Milton Hershey School Senior’s Cancer Research

The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Upside section featured MHS student and Philadelphia native Nathaniel Boyd, who’s excelled in the classroom, on the basketball court, and in the lab with cancer research. A few summers ago, Boyd interned at Penn State Health’s Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, working to find cures for hard-to-treat cancers. His work was so impressive that he was hired—as a high school student—as a paid research assistant. Boyd did all this while earning college credits and captaining the 19-5 MHS basketball team.
