We are sad to share that former US Senator Adlai Stevenson III of Illinois has passed away. After graduating from Milton Academy in 1948, he attended Harvard and went on to join the Marine Corps. The great grandson of former Vice President Adlai Stevenson, he was elected senator in 1970 and reelected in 1974. Read more about Senator Stevenson’s life.
When legendary wrestling coach and history teacher Dick Griffin passed away last September, it prompted his son, Matt Griffin ’86, to reflect on the extraordinary opportunities that he and his late brother, Cub, enjoyed at Milton. As a tribute to Dick, Cub, and his late mother, Ellie, Milton’s pioneering and trusted director of health and counseling, Matt created the Griffin Family Memorial Scholarship. Dick and Ellie strived to create equal opportunity at Milton, and the fund will carry on their goal of helping students reach their full potential. Thank you to the Griffins for their countless contributions to Milton.
