HERSHEY, Pa. — Elementary and middle school students at the Milton Hershey School wrapped up Women's History Month with a visit from a special guest on Monday: Miss Pennsylvania, Meghan Sinisi.

Sinisi, of Altoona, read books to female elementary students and hosted an assembly for middle school students, where she shared messages of confidence, acceptance, dedication and goal-setting, MHS officials said in a press release.

Sinisi also shared her talents as a world-class baton twirler, teaching the basics of twirling and performing her award-winning routine.

Sinisi, an autism advocate, nonprofit founder and podcast co-host, was crowned Miss Pennsylvania in the summer of 2021 and competed in the Miss America 2022 pageant in December. 

The 26-year-old Sinisi graduated from Altoona High School in 2013 and from Syracuse University in 2017, where she earned a bachelor's degree in communications. She earned a master's degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia last year.
