Wow a whopping 20 people protested. Hersey should shut the school down and all the great education they gave for free to under-privileged kids.

I think you all need to get a life and stop jumping on the bandwagon about the whole Hershey name. Just cause you all think you can get money from a company. There are plenty of other schools out there and just because Hershey has been in the spot light lately, it makes them an easy payday for you. Get a life and look around

My pack of cub scouts visited the Hershey factory and hershey park as part of our trip to Gettysburg and it was chosen to tour since MR. Hershey was viewed as such a great American with what he had done for children and the boys in orphanages--but this is exactly NOT what I would expect the Hershey family or trustees to want-are they absolutely uneducated boobs? Do they think that a boy who is known positive is going to infect another student? that is their BS claim. Hershey's equal STIGMA! Boy!

Ryan White all over again! Private institution thinks they can decide who they can exclude isn't it violation of ADA? Sickening appalling,, Isn't Hershey schools the original Boys Town/orphanages? Hershey was the "benevolent founder" whose trust & co. sales pays this school! I will not buy any chocolate kisses, bars etc. until they apologize and reverse this unenlightened atrocity committed against the very kids they set up to protect, the most vulnerable. Stigma still exists but we must fight!

Boycotts work. It worked with Florida Orange Juice. It worked with Coors Beer, and it will work with Hersey Products. I won't buy any more of Hersey's Chocolates and encourage others to do so too. As for this fantastic young man, you are very brave, intelligent, and good hearted. Please don't let these fat cat corporate bullies turn you off. Please pursue your dreams of receiving an excellent education. Sending you love and support.

I remember going to Hershey park when I was just a little boy. If i would have known this would have happened, I wouldn't have went. They think this kid is going to have sex with everyone? Lol, guess that means they think he's hot! Would they be surprised to know that being HIV positive does not prevent someone from having a healthy sex life? These people need to grow up, enough is enough. And he's right, knowledge is power
