The Franklin High School graduating class of 1951 met for its 60th Anniversary Saturday at Tartan Hall. Several of the class members could not be there, and several are deceased.

In 2001, this class established a scholarship for students from Franklin High and since that time 22 students have been helped with scholarships of various sizes.
