Center Bank Donation

We would like to thank Center Bank for their continued support of the Milford Schools Foundation. Center Bank recently conducted a customer survey and committed to donated $10 for every customer survey that was completed. So, we would like to thank all of the Center Bank customers that took the time to complete the survey and raise $1,560 for the Foundation. This was truly a beneficial event for all involved. Jim Parker and Jean Ackermann were presented a check today from Angela Hawkins on behalf of Center Bank.

Proud to be an Eagle?

Results are already pouring in from the new alumni survey that Milford Schools Foundation launched this week.

In the process of doing research for awards and scholarships, Foundation members have discovered over the years that there are only piecemeal collections of information about Milford grads. When the question arose, “Where are they now?” it was tough to find an answer.

The Foundation decided to sponsor a survey to begin collecting alumni information to be housed in one main database. This information will be used only by the Foundation and by the administration of the Milford school district to support future alumni activities.

Milford 5th Graders Take on Space

Mulberry Elementary teacher Steve Heck and the Milford Schools Foundation have helped bring the excitement of space and science to Milford 5th graders this school year.

A grant from Duke Energy has provided new resources and opportunities that include:

  • Teacher training at iSpace in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)
  • iSpace mission visitation by all Milford 5th grade students (548 students)
  • Formation of 137 student-design teams whose experiments may be selected to go to space

Throughout January, fifth graders visited iSPACE, located on the Scarlet Oaks Campus of Great Oaks. iSpace is designed for students in grades Pre-K through 12 with an emphasis on hands-on learning in the areas of STEM.

“The iSpace visit was to help motivate students in STEM, foster student team work, and develop inquiry-based skills in students. And, to have some fun with science too!” shared Heck.

Boyd E. Smith teacher, Bridget Moore added, “My students and I LOVED the field trip to iSPACE! I have never been on a field trip where 100% of the students were engaged 100% of the time and LEARNED so much!”

The next STEM-related project for 5th graders will be the formation of student-design teams. A total of 137 teams will be formed throughout all elementary schools and then given the task to create an experiment. For their experiments, students will only be given a 10-centimeter cube and the rest is up to them. Continue reading

Nominate Distinguished Milford High School Alumni

The Milford Schools Foundation has established an Outstanding Alumni Award. This award honors graduates who have distinguished themselves in many diverse fields of endeavor after leaving Milford High School. They have done this through career achievements, service, or contributions to society in one of the following areas: Arts/Humanities, Business/Industry, Community Service, Science/Education, Public Service, Military Service, Athletics, or Special Recognition. In the past, these honorees have represented seven generations of MHS history. These alumni are honored at the annual Night of The Stars banquet in the fall.

The goal is to make the entire community aware that the Milford Schools produce outstanding graduates. Also, through a Senior-Alumni Assembly, the foundation wants to increase the awareness of our current students to the limitless potential that awaits them in their own careers.

The Milford Schools Foundation is accepting nominations for this year’s Outstanding Alumni Awards. Any Milford High School graduate who has excelled in his/her personal or professional life is eligible.
