Supporting Students is a Milton Tradition
While the Class of 2014 has left the quad, the Class of 2015—and students to come—are counting on you, and on your support. Milton's Annual Fund is money raised each year to support the day-to-day activities of our School. It benefits every student by providing extraordinary learning opportunities, as well as helping meet the Academy's general needs. A vital source of expendable dollars, the Annual Fund has historically provided seven to ten percent of Milton's yearly operating budget. Through giving to the Annual Fund, alumni, parents and friends strengthen the highest priorities of the Academy: exceptional academics, passionate faculty, broad opportunities, and talented classmates who are often lifetime friends.
Please give to the Annual Fund to help support today's students and protect the Milton essentials.
"For last year's words belong to last year's language and next year's words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning."
–T.S. Eliot, Class of 1906
Family, faculty and friends stood witness as 171 members of Milton Academy's Class of 2014 made an end to their time at Milton during the School's graduation exercises on Friday, June 6. As is tradition at Milton's commencement, graduates and faculty were led by a bagpiper as they made their way from Straus Library to the ceremony on the quad. Following an invocation by Chaplain Suzanne DeBuhr and welcome by Head of School Todd Bland, student speakers, Sydney Park and Valentine Ora—elected by classmates to speak on their behalf—addressed the audience. Before receiving their diplomas, students also heard from this year's graduate speaker, television and film producer Betsy Beers '75.
