Dedication

 

"To the Moms and Dads of Franklin High School, we dedicate this, our annual of 1946-1947.  You have always been willing to sacrifice that we may get an education.  You have always been able and willing to encourage us when life seemed darkest.  You have always been an inspiration to each and every one of us even though at times we’ve neglected to tell you so."
