Milford High School celebrated their Homecoming week beginning Monday, October 10 as students celebrated their annual spirit days at the school. Each day of the week was celebrated as students had fun dressing up for Retro Day, Super Hero Day, Twin Day and Dress for Success Day. On the last student day, Milford High School students displayed their pride by wearing maroon and gold on Spirit Day.
