Business Networking with HMS

HMS is connected to the extensive community of entrepreneurs and business leaders in Lancaster County. These businesses see the value of education at HMS that encourages creativity and entrepreneurial spirit along with hands-on learning and the values of perseverance, integrity and service to others. From hosting class field trips and HMS Venture Program interns, to providing need-based scholarships through the EITC/OSTC programs, HMS students benefit from connecting to Christian business leaders in our community.

This event has concluded for this year. If you are interested in future events like this, please contact HMS Director of Advancement, Mr. Jody Fausnight at
