Milford High Sends the Class of 2019 Off to New Adventures and New Successes

The 246 members of the Class of 2019 gathered together for one last time on the Milford High School football field for the Annual Commencement Ceremonies held on a beautiful Sunday, June 2.

Milford High School Class of 2019 Valedictorian Gianni Panno had some words of wisdom for his fellow classmates on their graduation day.

"Take every chance you can to have an adventure. Do not shy away from new and uncertain pathways, but rather embrace them with open arms," he said.

Panno addressed his classmates, administration and the crowd of family and friends during the 169th Commencement Ceremony held on Sunday, June 2.

The 246 Milford High graduates listened as Panno encouraged them to go out into the world and achieve their dreams.

"This is your life and you choose how to live it; so choose well and wisely," he said

Salutatorian Eliza Valente spoke about the "personality" of the Class of 2019.

"We pursue interests instead of accolades; we collaborate with and support each other," she said. "We were competitive, but never cutthroat. We build each other up, not cut each other down."

She asked her classmates to keep those same ethics as they headed off into their future.

"Get involved in things that you love to do and pursue whatever path you think is right," said Eliza. "I hope that in pursuing our future success, we never lose sight of our collaborative nature."

Class President Ryan Hazard spoke about the lessons that he learned through the people he has met and the experiences he has had during his four years of high school.

"I stand here speaking to you, hoping to inspire and get you excited about this new chapter in your lives," he said.

Hazard spoke about the lessons he has learned through the people he has met and experiences he has had during his four years of high school – those of the importance of hard work, learning from one's mistakes, and gratefulness.

"It is so important to be grateful for what you have," he said. "Please take time to thank the people in your life that have guided you and pushed you to do better."

Before the presentation of diplomas, Milford High Principal Joshua Otlin encouraged the graduates to use their education and good fortunate to make the world a better place.

"We have much to be thankful for; never take that for granted. I urge you to use your education to care for the helpless and stand up for the oppressed," he said. "May your path from Milford be filled with health, meaning and life."

"The Class of 2019 has a lot of heart," said Otlin. "Thank you for the legacy you leave behind."

Diplomas were then presented by School Committee Vice Chairperson James Ligor before the tassels were turned, hats were tossed, and the Milford High School Class of 2019 recessed off of the field as graduates.
