Opening of School 2022
Welcome to the 2022-23 School Year
This year’s Opening of School Assembly started the first day of classes like no other with special announcements such as the 2022 Alumna of the Year. The excitement inspired the MHS community to embrace this year’s theme, Day 1 … Day WON.
2022 Alumna of the Year
MHS named Jocelyn Bioh ’01 as the 2022 Alumna of the Year in recognition for her accomplishments in the visual and performing arts. Bioh said she is proud to be the youngest and first Black woman to receive this prestigious honor and to be a vessel in which diversity is spotlighted.

Milton and Catherine Hershey had no idea that the home and school they started in 1909 would one day serve thousands of students and graduates. Their legacy is the beginning of our story. As we enter into another school year at MHS, we are reminded of the Hersheys’ vision and all that is left to accomplish on the road ahead.
Celebrating the Fresh Start
Prior to the first day of school, the MHS community took part in a Home Life Community Day Celebration and an All-Senior Chapel Service to excite students, staff, and community members for the new school year.
