On The Spark, we sat down with the Executive Director of the program Senate Alexander. Senate Alexander, Esq., a 2006 graduate of Milton Hershey School, is the executive director of Catherine Hershey Schools for Early Learning. Senate is the first to serve in this role, leading Milton Hershey School’s $350 million early childhood education initiative to initially develop up to six Early Childhood Education Centers in Pennsylvania. The Centers will provide cost-free programming to children from six weeks to age 5 from economically disadvantaged and at-risk backgrounds.
