Franklin City Schools is proud to accept a donation from the George and Margaret McLane Foundation for $200,000 donated over the next two school years. This donation will be used exclusively for the Student Achievement/Enrichment grant. This grant is designed to recognize and support exemplary practices that will have a positive impact on student achievement and/or provide enrichment experiences for the students of Franklin City Schools. The McLane Foundation was founded through an endowment by Wilhelmina McLane after her passing in 2011. She was a 1926 Franklin HS graduate and her father, George, was a four time mayor of Franklin. This foundation also supports the students of Franklin City Schools through two annual scholarships, replacement of the high school auditorium curtains, and sponsorship of the spring musical and McLane Summer Music Program. The students, staff, and Board of Education of Franklin City Schools sincerely thanks the McLane Foundation for this generous gift.
