WHYY: A Look at Catherine Hershey Schools’ $350 Million Initiative to Boost Early Childhood Education

Catherine Hershey Schools for Early Learning (CHS) Executive Director, Senate Alexander, Esq., recently spoke with Philadelphia radio station, WHYY, about the importance of early childhood education and CHS’ plans to address the growing need for accessible, high-quality programming. Through the initial launch of up to six centers in Pennsylvania, CHS will provide a cost-free, high-quality early learning program to children from birth to age five from low-income families.

The interview with WHYY host Cherri Gregg also highlights Senate’s personal experience attending Milton Hershey School (MHS), which he credits in changing the trajectory of his life. Today, he proudly serves as the first-ever Executive Director of CHS, where he hopes to make a similar impact on children and families.
