Mrs. Marcy, Ms. Berge , Madame Stephenson, Michelle, Kathy, and Karen — these women don’t really know each other, but they all have something in common. Each was a mentor to me over the years. They helped me along this road, called life.
Each played a significant role:
I count all these women as my friends. And yet, I’m not sure they all know what a mark they left on my life. But, I so thankful for these women who invested in me when I was a child and a young(er) woman.
They were mentors to me at significant points in my life and helped shape who I am. Finding people like this is not as easy as it seems and yet a good mentor can add so much to one’s life.
Sometimes we don’t know know when we’ve had an impact on another’s life. In fact, if you’re a Hershey’s chocolate fan, you’ve been a behind the scenes support  to mentors at the Milton Hershey School , a
cost-free, private, coeducational home and school is the largest of its kind in the nation. Today, MHS is a safe-haven for more than 1,800 girls and boys from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade who come from states throughout the country. Children from families of low-income, limited resources and social need are given the opportunity to work hard, realize their potential and build towards a brighter future.
This year the Milton Hershey School celebrates its 100th year. While you’ve been gobbling kisses and S’mores fueled by Hershey’s bars , you’ve also been helping to support this unique school . Their alumni have gone on to impact their communities as well. 
This week three LifeasMOM readers will each receive a basket filled with Hershey candies.
Leave a comment on this post, telling us about a special mentor in your life.
