What’s Next For Franklin High?
By: Becca Shawver
Have you ever wondered who came before us, or who will come after? Are we what the class of 1924 thought we would be? Will the class of 2020 be anything like us? Are we moving forward or are we just standing still, waiting for some other class to make a name for Franklin High?
With a new school being built it’s a chance for Franklin High School to be known for more than a field house full of memories. The sophmores today will be the first seniors in the new school, leading the way for everyone after us. The high school now has a reputation being run down and this new high school gives us an opportunity to have pride in where we go to school.
The first high school was Horace Mann High School, where students attended from 1896-1924. In those days girls our age were strapped into corsets and weren’t allowed to be in the presence of a man unless they were chaperoned and boys were held to the highest of standards. The high schools after Horace Mann High changed how girls were perceived and how the boys were expected to act. What will we change, moving from this high school to the next?
