Milwaukee Public Schools hosted its annual Senior Send-off on May 30 at Washington High School. The event helps students celebrate the end of high school and the start of new adventures in college and career. The event included food, music, games, and great prizes for a dorm room or apartment. Students also received information about supports available in four MPS College and Career Centers this summer.
For the first time, 20 graduates were nominated for “Senior of the Year” honors, recognizing their persistence in overcoming obstacles to exhibit exceptional achievement. Many MPS students have faced significant challenges in their lives and are now on their way to college with multiple scholarships. Congratulations to Samari Price, our first Senior of the Year! Samari attended Milwaukee Marshall High School and will attend Marquette University in fall.
MPS students can get help with college planning and applications, scholarships, career planning, and more this summer at MPS College and Career Centers. Four locations will be open: Alexander Hamilton High School, Milwaukee High School of the Arts, Rufus King International High School, and South Division High School.
