Student Leadership

Student Council

Student Council is a student government organization comprised of class officers and council officers elected by fellow students and class representatives who are selected by an application process. Student Council provides a forum for student concerns and a link with administrators, and the community. Time commitment is year round. Student Council coordinates many social activities such as Homecoming and many school and community service projects. Subcommittees include SADD, Staff Appreciation Committee, Welcoming Committee, Blood Drive Committee, and Spirit Committee. Leadership training is provided at local, state, and national levels.

Student Ambassadors

Student Ambassadors are motivated student leaders of the Milford HS community. Ambassadors represent the Counseling Department through acting as peer counselors for new students, offering tours and presentations at Milford events, planning major mentoring and college/career events, and helping the counseling office better support all students. Student Ambassadors who join during or before their junior year will also be eligible to participate in an internship with the Counseling Department during their senior year. Interns are required to plan a project or event, and present to the Superintendent's Cabinet. There is an application process that begins in May to become a Student Ambassador for the following year. Student Ambassadors meet as a team twice per month before school, with additional small group meetings as needed to prepare for events.

National Honor Society

The Milford High School chapter of the National Honor Society was organized to focus on the ideals of scholarship, service, character, and leadership. Currently all NHS members are required to maintain a 3.5 GPA and complete 20 hours of service each semester. Tapping of potential members will take place annually in the fall for juniors and seniors. Tapping means the required GPA has been achieved and the NHS Faculty Council has approved each student for membership. Induction means that the GPA has been maintained, 20 hours of service to the school/community has been performed, dues are current, leadership has been proven and good character has been demonstrated. Upon induction into the local chapter, students become members of the NHS. The spirit of giving and helping is the best part of the NHS. Typically, Honor Society members collect canned goods for Milford Miami Ministries, tutor at MJHS, help with the Relay-for-Life and raise funds for the Freestore Foodbank. Opportunities for leadership are always available. This organization strives to support and serve our school and community.
