Franklin High School held its Annual Scholarship Night on May 28. Kathy Breedlove was the guest speaker.
“This class is truly among the strongest ever academically and I have been privileged to have worked with them this year,” said Breedlove. “ I have been privileged to see some of the most astounding grade point averages and SAT scores than I have rarely seen before. In addition, this group has shown leadership and strength of character in a variety of endeavors and I expect remarkable contributions to our society through their amazing gifts.
Breedlove said that in addition to local scholarships there were some particularly competitive regional and one national scholarship as well. Also awarded were 16 New Century Scholar Awards which are full tuition scholarships for two years to SCC and two years to Western Carolina University.
