MILTON — Choice, hope and success were all major themes as the Milton Area High School Class of 2023 celebrated its commencement outdoors Wednesday, with the ceremony held in the recently renovated athletic stadium.

“These past four years have been especially taxing on one’s mind. We saw the entirety of the pandemic come and go, as I am sure you are all well aware,” said class President Nicholas Fleck, to an audience of fellow graduates, parents and friends. “But I am also sure nobody wants to hear me drone on about the challenges of life during COVID, so instead let us focus on our triumphs and failures of the last four years.”
