MILLBURN, NJ - Millburn High School lauded the graduating class of 2017 on Thursday afternoon. Friends, family, and faculty filled the bleachers overlooking the football field to witness the life milestone. With max capacity quickly surpassed, many attendees watched the ceremony in the auditorium via an internet live stream. 
Noah Brookhim, the Senior class president for all four years, addressed the graduating class of 2017. “We all have a blank check,” Brookhim said to his fellow seniors. “We can write anything on it that our heart desires. But only we can cash it.”

MHS principal Dr. William Miron presented the Sally S. deVeer Memorial Award during graduation, continuing the tradition which began in 1994. The award, whose namesake was a Millburn Board of Education member, acknowledges excellence in teaching and rotates between high school, middle school, and elementary school faculty. This year Mary Jane Reisler of Hartshorn Elementary was the honoree.
