Tonight, June 4, 2019, Barnitz Stadium will be full of Pomp and Circumstance as the Middletown High School (MHS) Class of 2019 graduates. Three hundred fifty-five strong, we congratulate them for their success!

Mr. Rick Pearce will give the commencement address to the students, families, and Middie alumni. Mr. Pearce graduated MHS in 1981 before attending Miami University. Since graduating from MHS 38 years ago, Mr. Pearce now works tirelessly for the Chamber of Commerce, serving Middletown, Monroe, and Trenton. He works diligently to support the district’s partnership with area businesses and his community service commitment to the youth of Middletown is legendary.  

The Middletown High School administration chose Mr. Pearce as the 2019 MHS commencement speaker because he knows what it takes to succeed, especially when you dream big. Mr. Pearce’s message will serve as an inspiration to this year’s graduating seniors and the audience as a whole.
