“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 members of the Class of 2009 made an end to their time at Milton Academy during the School’s 210th graduation exercises on Friday, June 5. Seniors began the morning’s festivities with a traditional procession around campus, bidding farewell to underclassmen at each of the eight houses. With flowers in hand, the graduating class made its way to the formal ceremony on the lawn outside Apthorp Chapel. Elected by Milton’s seniors to speak on their behalf, Chloe Cole and Matthew Trammell addressed the audience. Alumnae Erika Mobley ’86—who leads business development and licensing for Apple’s App Store—delivered the commencement address.
