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 is completed for this year.

Thank you to our business community and to all who participated in the 2020 Networking Breakfast.
