The Milford School District is not only welcoming two new elementary buildings this school year (which look GREAT!), but visitors to Milford High School will also see some new additions.
First, MHS has a Mission statement! Developed by students and staff, with indirect input through surveys and other feedback from parents, the Mission outlines the goals of what attending the school and graduating as an Eagle means.
Second, through a generous gift from the Milford Athletic Boosters, Milford High School Student Council, and Milford High School Class of 2016 (with a little bit thrown in from the principal’s budget), visitors to the high school are now greeted with a beautiful display incorporating technology with history. Upon entering, a new display case features Milford Schools “artifacts” – right now, the very first graduation program from back in 1883; a dragon statue presented to MHS from the Taiwanese Student Exchange Program; the Patriots Award from Remembrance at the Meadows; and an old records book going back to the 1800s.
These artifacts are displayed in a glass case custom-built by a local woodworker, who is also a Milford grad. In the center, a rotating screen provides details on each.
Above the case are two electronic screens that feature photos and names of our Valedictorians and Salutatorians. While plaques had been on the wall recognizing these talented students, the screens highlight them and make them easier to see.
Around the corner is the athletic section, with a screen highlighting the Milford Athletics Hall of Fame honorees and another providing the latest athletic stats and schedules. Trophies will be housed in the case below.
Thank you to all the organizations, community members and students who donated to make these beautiful displays a reality!
