Milford High School seniors held their traditional senior cruise and senior picnic Monday, May 23 in celebration of their twelve years of hard work and dedication. The seniors said their last hooray and goodbye to classmates, teachers and the school that has become their home over the past four years.
“I am very excited for this moment. It has been a long time coming and I cannot wait to begin college,” commenter senior Sara Ryder. Sara will be attending Delaware Tech next fall to study business.
The seniors decorated their vehicles and made a lap around downtown Milford to celebrate the end of their secondary education and the beginning of something new. The cruise ended at the Sunnybrae Mansion next to the High School where the senior picnic was held. The McColley’s, who own the property, have seen their oldest son and three daughters enjoy the cruise and picnic over the past eight years.
Their daughter Catie, who is a senior, commented “I am just having so much fun. It feels really good to put all this work in and receive a thank you like this. I am going to miss my friends next year but I am looking forward to college.” Catie will be following her siblings and attending the University of Delaware this fall.
The picnic was full of great food, music, photo booths and of course the seniors having a chance to have fun with their fellow classmates and teachers. The last step for the seniors will be graduation which will be held on Thursday, May 26 at 6pm at the Milford High School Briggs Stadium.
