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.

As the committee handling the scholarships considered their ages, and the low interest rates available, the scholarship was discontinued with the issuance of the final scholarships this spring. The class was glad to have two of their former teachers celebrating with them, Clayton Ramsey and Myra Waldroop.
