From the Desk of Milton Public Schools Superintendent Mary Gormley:
For those of you who missed this year’s Celebrate Milton event, I’d like to share the great news that two of our Milton Public School programs were recognized with the “Community Builders” award.
Last year, Milton High School’s Diversity Committee developed and hosted the community event 50 Years Later: Why the Struggle for Civil Rights is Still Relevant. The impact of this amazing work, vision and leadership are still being felt and appreciated! I am very proud of the Milton High School staff members who helped to create this riveting experience. This year, Milton High School’s Diversity Committee is sponsoring Woman Up! The Power of Phenomenal Women, on November 18th in the Charles C. Winchester Auditorium. The panelists will discuss their journey towards leadership, perceptions and expectations around leadership, and they will reflect on their own challenges and successes pertaining to gender and power
The other winner of the Community Builders Award was Cunningham Elementary School’s Diversity Committee. They were recognized for developing a “Read About Diversity” series of five books and curriculum for students in grades kindergarten through grade 5. Other administrators in our elementary schools are applying for grants to replicate the program. Congratulations to all MPS staff who contributed to these successes.
