A CTE Legacy Built on Chocolate: Milton Hershey School's 100 Years
Kemmery, Robert
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v85 n1 p48-49 Jan 2010
One hundred years ago, Chocolate Magnate Milton S. Hershey and his wife Catherine signed the deed of trust creating the Hershey Industrial School in the heart of their Pennsylvania farming community. They had no children of their own and wanted to help orphan boys get a good education. The couple eventually left their entire fortune to the school. This article features Milton Hershey School (MHS), a school that provides everything for children from disadvantaged backgrounds--a top-notch education, recreation, food, housing, clothing and medical and dental care--all free of charge. MHS, located in Hershey, Pennsylvania, serves more than 1,800 boys and girls in financial and social need in grades pre-kindergarten through 12. The academic program at MHS is designed to prepare each student for further education, the world of work, and personal excellence. All students are required to participate in a career and technical education (CTE) program in addition to taking college preparatory classes.
