Franklin City Schools honored with chamber award

Posted on: June 23, 2021 11:00 am
Franklin City Schools was a co-winner with Carlisle Local Schools at the Franklin Area Chamber of Commerce's annual award ceremony on June 22. 
FCS received the President's Award, which is given for service to the community and/or the chamber. The district was honored for stepping up to ensure that students had access to meals when the pandemic shut down schools in March 2020. 
The award reads: "In March 2020, when a global pandemic forced the closure of Ohio’s schools, Franklin City Schools immediately stepped up to serve one of our community’s most vulnerable groups: students who depend on schools for their meals. Within days of the shutdown order, Franklin City Schools had developed a plan to ensure that students had access to food. They served thousands of meals to area children through the spring. The district’s actions made the pandemic shutdown less stressful to area families; Franklin City School District is truly a community asset."
Dr. Mike Sander, Board member Lori Raleigh, and Business Manager Rodney Roberts accepted the award on behalf of the district, and said that that credit went to the district staff who made this happen and served nearly 100,000 meals to Franklin students.
