HE&R Celebrates #CTEMonth with Milton Hershey School

In honor of National Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month, Hershey Entertainment & Resorts (HE&R) celebrates the achievements of Milton Hershey School (MHS) students enrolled in one of 12 career pathways including Agriculture/Natural Resources, Business/Financial Management & Accounting, Electronic Media & Journalism, Culinary Arts/Restaurant Management Services, and Computer Science & Innovation. The CTE curriculum gives students the opportunity for hands-on work in the classroom, and via internships and apprenticeships. HE&R is proud to partner with MHS for the 'Hershey Project Pathways' (HPP) program. Students are matched with HE&R team members whose careers align with the CTE pathway.

Over the last two years, MHS students and their HE&R mentors have worked on projects with a focus on our newest region of Hersheypark, Hershey's Chocolatetown. Some of the HPP MHS students joined us for the Hershey's Chocolatetown groundbreaking event! This year, three new dining experiences will open at Hershey's Chocolatetown and if you look closely, you'll see work completed by the HPP students including the design of the kid's menu at The Chocolatier as well as making a special table, and refurbishing unique elements of the restaurant. We commend MHS for its innovative CTE programming and are proud to be part of it. 

Please note some of the images and video footage were taken before the COVID-19 pandemic.
