Milton Hershey a home away from home for Mark Johnson

The Milton Hershey School is the kind of place where everyone has a story.  Their students come from all kinds of backgrounds to get a free education and a better life.  Senior football player Mark Johnson has one of those stories.  He grew up one of six children outside of Philadelphia.  His mother Heather was working as a single mom and found out about the Milton Hershey School.  She decided to send Mark in 7th grade and doesn’t regret it for a second.  She now lives in Erie and only gets to see Mark a few times a year.  This season at the Cocoa Bean Bowl game they shared a moment years in the making.
