Longest-Tenured HE&R Team Member Retires

We celebrate Glenn Wagner's 55+ year career

This week, the longest-tenured employee of Hershey Entertainment & Resorts (HE&R) retired from the company. After more than 55 years of dedicated service, Glenn Wagner said farewell to his role in laundry production at Hershey Laundry. Throughout his tenure with HE&R, Glenn barely missed a day of work. His loyalty to his team members, Hershey Laundry, and our guests is one to be emulated and admired. 

Glenn started working for Hershey Laundry one week after high school graduation. He shared that his greatest achievement has been working at the same company for all of these years. He also said that “HE&R is a really good place to work!” 

Known by many for his smile and kindness, Glenn shared that a secret to his success has been to accept people as they are, help new people learn the job, and work together as a team to help each other.

“We cannot thank Glenn enough for his selfless spirit of service to Hershey Laundry. He is one of the hardest working team members I have ever met and was always eager to help others. His patience in teaching colleagues only made our team better. I am honored to have worked alongside Glenn and am proud of his accomplishments at Hershey Laundry.“
Sean Nies, General Manager, Hershey Laundry

A sports enthusiast, Glenn loves the Hershey Bears hockey club and is a long-time season ticket holder. When not watching hockey games at GIANT Center, he can usually be seen cheering on the athletes at Lower Dauphin High School, his alma mater, or enjoying state championship wrestling matches. One of nine children, Glenn has always been active in his church. 

Congratulations, Glenn, on your retirement! Thank you for everything you did for HE&R, Hershey Laundry, and your coworkers. We are grateful to you for your many years of service.
