Wilkes, Milton Hershey partner
Wilkes University and Milton Hershey School have partnered to improve retention and graduation rates among low-income, firstgeneration college students. Under a new agreement, qualified students from Milton Hershey School are guaranteed a spot in the University’s Educational Gateway to Excellence program, Wilkesedge, which aids students in their transition from high school to college. It formalizes the relationship between the institutions, streamlining the admission process for any interested students, including those qualified for the Wilkes honors program.
