Congratulations to MPS 2020 winter graduates!

February 6, 2020


Milwaukee Public Schools has honored 56 students who completed graduation requirements during the fall semester and earned the right to wear a cap and gown. The auditorium at South Division High School was filled with proud parents, families, and friends who cheered for graduates as they crossed the stage. Even a light snowfall could not discourage the excitement of the graduates and their supporters.

Students wore their own school colors and created a rainbow of gowns that represented nearly every high school in the district. Along with diplomas, every graduate was presented with an MPS Alumni pin representing their membership in the MPS Forever Family. Graduates are encouraged to stay connected with their schools as they advance through their careers.

“We’re very proud of these graduates,” said Dr. John Hill, Director of College and Career Readiness. “A high school diploma is a first step on the journey to a successful career. A few of our students are graduating early, and many completed needed coursework that will change their lives by allowing them to graduate.”

MPS is proud to present these students with diplomas and send them on their personal journeys ready for college and career.
