MHS Seniors Start New Tradition

On Thursday, May 25 Milford High School Seniors started a new tradition as they walked the halls of their previous schools including Milford Central Academy, Benjamin Banneker, Lulu Ross and Mispillion Elementary schools. As the seniors walked the halls, the soon-to-be graduates, were greeted by students of each school with cheers and signs.

“We hope that this ceremony helps not only celebrate our seniors’ achievement, but also inspire our future Buccaneers to work hard and earn their high school diploma,” said Milford High School Principal Shawn Snyder. “We have had a tremendously positive response from our elementary teachers, parents and students. We plan to make this an annual tradition.”

Milford Central Academy was the first school that seniors visited as they were met with applause from students lining the hallways on both floors. “…it was an awesome experience for my sixth graders. It was great for them to glimpse their futures and why their hard work at the middle school level is worth the effort,” said MCA teacher Mrs. Wheatley. “We made signs, made sure the end of the alphabet was well encouraged, and got to see Mrs. Creasey’s pride shine through for her son. I think it was a wonderful idea.”

The excitement from both the seniors and the young students could be felt in the air as they visited all three elementary schools as well. “This was great to see. I’m not sure who enjoyed it more…the seniors or the elementary students,” said Mrs. Wilson of Benjamin Banneker Elementary. “…loved seeing the high fives from the seniors to the younger kids. I loved hearing the one second grader at Banneker say ‘I can’t wait till I’m a 12th grader and can do this.”

Milford School District hopes to continue this tradition well into the future and is encouraging the community be play a role in helping celebrate the seniors and their accomplishments.
