Midstate educators complete over 14-hour day at Marine boot camp


Midstate educators completed another 14-hour plus day at Marine boot camp. 

They completed obstacle courses, jumping over huge hurdles, testing their arm strength, and mounting inverted walls. There was also a chance to rappel down a 47-foot tower. 

The educators said they have learned a lot of lessons like discipline, selflessness, and an unwavering commitment to others. 

“They do this for a living and to be able to trust them as they trust each other, that’s just a great experience, ” said Gary Willhide, of Milton Hershey School. 

“Your confidence is in the Marines. They do a great job of training us and they do a great job of instilling the fact that they’ve got you, no matter what they’ve got you, and they’re not gonna let anything hurt you,”  said Colleen Gerber, of Dauphin County Technical School. 

Thursday was the second day of boot camp for the educators.
