Millington Central High School conducted it’s 105th Commencement exercises last Thursday night. Many factors made the Class of 2015’s night special with two standing out. This year’s seniors were the first to graduate under a Millington sky on the Mooney Boswell Football Field since 1987. In addition the Class of 2015 was the first for Millington Municipal Schools. MCHS Principal Clint Durley officially released the Class of 2015 shortly after 8 p.m. The previous hour filled the sky with cheers, music by the Millington Band and vocals from the Millington Choir. The packed grand stands also heard the words of Millington Senior Class President McKenzie Morrow. The MCHS Hall of Famer reminded her peers of it’s four-year journey through many highs and lows of losing two classmates. The salutatorian address was given by Jason Jiang. He kept his speech short focusing on congratulating the Class of 2015 for surviving so many changes and being the first MMS class to graduate. Valedictorian Ashley Cavaliere echoed those sentiments and gave thanks to God for a clear and cool evening to walk across the stage. In front of dignitaries like State Rep. Ron Lollar, Millington Mayor Terry Jones, the Board of Aldermen and members of the Millington Municipal School Board, each graduate received his or her diploma from the administrators and MMS Superintendent Dr. David Roper.
