Every month the administration at Milford Senior High School will spotlight the success of one senior student. Students are nominated for their commitment to their education, their involvement in after school activities and the leadership that they bring to everything they do.

October’s Senior Spotlight is Lindsay Shockley

MILFORD — Lindsay Shockley is a flute section leader and leads her school in the classroom, band and the community.

Lindsay said her primary focus at Milford Senior High School is to get her education and have fun along the way.

“Friends come and go, but your education is something you keep working at that will never leave you,” she said.

Lindsay is focused on completing her Arts and Sciences pathway at Milford and leading the band to a different tune.

She is a musically talented student who not only plays the flute, but also the guitar and piano.

Lindsay’s hard work in school does not go unnoticed.

Mr. Voshell went on to say he wishes he had ten more students just like her.

Looking forward in her senior year, Lindsay is hoping to go to college and pursue a bachelor’s degree in psychology.

The music doesn’t stop there because Lindsay wants to continue on and complete her masters degree in occupational therapy.

She is waiting on acceptance letters from are Shenandoah University and Desales University.

When asked about her favorite Teacher or Coach at the high school, Lindsay said, “Mr. Voshell is my favorite teacher. He is my favorite teacher because anytime you need anything, Mr. Voshell is always there. He is laid back, but pushes me when he knows I can do better.”

Senior Lindsay Shockley’s determination and success at the high school can be summarized and explained by her favorite quote which is, “There is no need to be perfect to inspire others. Let people get inspired by how you deal with your imperfections.”

Through that quote, she challenges herself and those around her to be the best they can be.
