MHS Students Learn About Hispanic Culture and Heritage Through Mentorship Program With The Hershey Company

On Friday, May 31, employees from The Hershey Company came to Milton Hershey School to listen to presentations by MHS Spanish students.

All school year, the senior Spanish students participated in a Hispanic Mentorship Program with native Spanish speakers from The Hershey Company. Throughout the school year, the students and The Hershey Company employees would have conversations in Spanish and learn about each other’s backgrounds in Spanish and sometimes find similar heritage stories.

The program began with The Hershey Company employees giving presentations in Spanish about the path they chose and ended with MHS students giving presentations about their hopes for the future, also in Spanish.

“By having professionals come into the classroom, it helps us as students to realize the importance of learning Spanish,” said Demetria Tennison, MHS senior. “It also helps us see where we could be if we continue learning and using the Spanish language.”
