As an alumnus of the Milton Hershey School, Dr. Nick Nissley has a fondness for the school’s benefactors. It was their philanthropy that afforded him a ‘second chance’ in life.  Dr. Nissley will share a brief history of Mr. and Mrs. Hershey and the famed chocolate business, as well as the less well-known but more extraordinary philanthropic endeavor of theirs – the Milton Hershey School.
