[Editorial] The Leaders of Milton

by The Milton Measure on Friday, June 9th, 2017

We’ve reached that bittersweet time of year again. Every year, we says goodbye to our graduating senior class as they prepare to move onto life outside the Milton bubble. Seniors play an extraordinary role on Milton’s campus. Milton, being a confusing and difficult place to navigate, needs seniors to guide and advise other members of Milton’s community. This year, our senior class radiated not only talent, energy, but also charisma.

Milton needs leaders to function. We need leaders in the classroom, on the sports field, in the art studio, and on stage. We need our leaders to help us learn, create, and understand. Without direction and example, Milton students would be lost.

This year, the senior leaders came in all forms, from members of the SGA to heads of clubs. These leaders worked to create opportunities for like-minded students to share their talents and thoughts by establishing several new clubs, including Art with a Social Conscience, Knitting Club, Gardening Club, Coffee for Change, Fashion Club, and the Tavern. These leaders also led and moderated thoughtful discussion during SGA meetings and club meetings.

The Class of 2017 holds a slew of fantastic athletes and artists. Just a quick look through senior project presentations, or the End of Year Art Show can reveal the high level of achievement and skill of senior artists, from wildly realistic paintings, to advanced and intricate ceramics. Several strong athletes dominated the fields and courts during their last year at Milton, helping Milton win ISL and New England Championships; these seniors were standout players as they united their teams and brought energy and spirit to their games.

Seniors also lead us by being role models and friends. Leadership positions are important for a community, but perhaps the best leader is simply a good friend one can look up to. We have all needed support this year in some capacity, having a trusted senior to turn to can alleviate stress. Friendly smiles in the hallway from seniors can make a daunting freshman year not so hard.

The 2016-2017 year definitely wasn’t easy for the Milton community. Especially regarding issues of discrimination and lack of transparency on campus, it is clear that we, as an institution, need to work on treating every student, teacher, and staff member with respect, making sure that all feel at home here. Achieving this task is no simple feat. A solution may include more conversations about perhaps difficult topics, a better Affective Ed program, and better communication between students and administration. With this year’s senior class having steered our community in the right direction, who better to help institute these changes for the future than next year’s leaders, the Class of 2018. Moving forward, rising seniors have the job of taking the wheel and continuing the progress started by seniors of the Class of 2017. Hopefully, the Class of 2018 will be up to the task.
