One-hundred-ninety-two seniors received their Milton Academy diplomas during the school’s commencement exercises on June 9, 2023. Graduation at Milton is a ceremony that carries years of traditions and favorite rituals—formal and informal. One longstanding tradition of the ceremony is students electing their student speakers, which assures seniors that they will, at their last Milton gathering as students, hear from classmates they have chosen. This year’s student body elected Gracie Sagar and Arhan Singh. Delivering the commencement address was alumnus John Avlon, Milton Academy Class of 1991 (pictured). John is an author, journalist, and senior political analyst at CNN. Sharing quotes from artists, leaders, and authors across history, John encouraged the Class of 2023 to live with purpose and passion. Their legacy, he told them, has already begun.
