MHS Launches Campus Champion Program
The Graduate Programs for Success Division of Milton Hershey School kicked off its new Campus Champion program on Oct. 14, 2020. Alumni from the Pittsburgh and Central PA regions joined MHS staff for a virtual game of trivia and learned more about the initiative.
The program offers increased support for recent MHS graduates by connecting alumni with students enrolled in colleges in their region. Campus Champion alumni agree to provide support for their students at least once per semester. They can do this by:
- providing encouragement and advice;
- celebrating accomplishments, especially small ones, like passing a test;
- providing transportation; and
- offering advice about local resources, such as auto mechanics, medical offices, the best local sub shop, and more.
Additional regions are expected to be added in the future. Alumni can sign up to be a Champion using this form.
