Milford High School Grads Look Toward their Futures

Encouraged to live life positively and with optimism, the 260 graduates of Milford High moved on to the next phase of their journey at the school's 167th Commencement Ceremony held on Sunday, June 4.

Under bright skies and wearing red and white caps and gowns, the Class of 2017 processed onto the football field with full Pomp and Circumstance. The ceremonies began with the National Anthem sung by the Milford High School Choirs and conducted by senior Allyson Chaisson.

Class President Christopher Cicciu welcomed the guests to the ceremony and thanked the teachers, administrators, and families for all of their support.

"We would be nowhere without them, and they have been rooting for us all this time," he said.

Cicciu also asked his fellow graduates to look at the day not as leaving something behind, but as looking towards the future as they begin college, military service, or the workforce.

"No matter what path you chose to take, I challenge all of you to make a difference; don't just go through the motions," he said.

Salutatorian Ashby Hobart speech was short on words, but full on good advice for his classmates.

"Whether we like it or not, change is coming," he said. "We can't let fear of failure hold us back from trying."

Hobart told his fellow graduates it is important to have some optimism, because "there is more good in this world than bad."

"Search for smiles and you will find them," he said.

Valedictorian Harmit Raval thanked his parents and his teachers for preparing him for what lies ahead. "Our futures will lead us to fantastic opportunities," he said.

To his classmates, Raval said he had "no doubt" they would leave their mark on the world. "Hard work and its ensuing success are amazing, but ultimately it is happiness that is far more valuable," he said.

Principal Carolyn Banach challenged the students to create the best possible version of themselves and told them that having a positive attitude and optimistic personality will go a long way.

"This will set you on a path that will lead to amazing opportunities, ones that you might not even have seen coming."

Banach, who will be leaving Milford at the end of the school year, fought back tears as she thanked the teachers and said goodbye to the students one last time.

"You have given is the greatest gift of all, the gift of yourselves," she said. "This is your moment...go and conquer the world."

Diplomas were presented to the students by School Committee Chairperson Joseph Morias before they recessed off of the field as graduates of the Milford High School Class of 2017.
