Milford School District has announced the 2020 Senior Events schedule honoring the achievements of Milford High School’s Class of 2020 and past traditions.
“The Class of 2020 deserves to be recognized for all of their hard work throughout their high school years,” says Milford High School Principal Jesse Parsley. “These senior events represent the end of their high school career and the beginning of the next chapters in their lives. The completion of high school is an exciting time for these students.”
Senior Events will begin with a Senior Awards presentation on Tuesday, June 9 at 7 pm. The event will honor students with academic and scholarship awards. The presentation will be shown through a YouTube video compilation of awards. The link for viewing will be communicated prior to the program.
The traditional Walking the Green will begin on the evening of Friday, June 12. Graduates and families will be scheduled for blocks of time June 12 – June 14 to arrive at Briggs Stadium to receive their diploma. Up to four family members may arrive with their graduate at Briggs Stadium. Graduates will be guided to the center of the field and will be able to “walk the green” to receive their diploma. Attending family members will have the opportunity to present the graduating senior with their diploma. The event will be live streamed so that family, friends and the community may witness the real-time accomplishment of graduates. Further details and links for viewing will be shared prior.
The Class of 2020 will be celebrated by the district-community during the 2020 Milford High School Senior Cruise as graduates parade through Milford during this annual event. The cruise will begin from Milford High School on Wednesday, June 17 at 6:30 pm. Milford School District and the City of Milford will partner to make this a memorable experience for graduates and support the community with a safe event. A route and guidelines are being designed to best support CDC and state guidance for social distancing and gatherings. Milford Police Department and Carlisle Fire Company will be escorting the parade.
Senior Events will culminate with a 2020 Graduation Ceremony shown through a YouTube video on Thursday, June 18 at 7 pm. The ceremony will contain a compilation of traditional student speeches, guest remarks, student performances and graduates receiving their diploma. Following the ceremony, video will continue with congratulatory remarks from Milford High School staff members, local officials and state officials. The link for viewing will be communicated prior to the ceremony.
Milford High School is committed to welcoming the Class of 2020 for an in-person class celebration on a future date when appropriate health conditions exist.
“We look forward to the upcoming 2020 Senior Events to celebrate Milford High School’s Class of 2020,” says Milford School District Superintendent Kevin Dickerson. “We are very proud of our seniors for how they have represented Milford School District throughout their educational careers, their accomplishments and their upcoming graduation from Milford High School. We invite our entire district-community to join us in celebrating this exceptional group of students.”
