The RISE Club at Franklin High School held a fundraising event last week to benefit the Shop with the Cop program.

Students were able to buy pieces of duct tape and tape FHS Principal Chris Baldwin and the school's resources officer, Dani Burrows to the wall.

The event raised $125.

The RISE club is focused on inspiring leadership among students.

The club is led by Deputy Dani Burrows and Marci Holland, Student Services Coordinator for Macon County Schools.

First round of Athletic Hall of Fame inductees honored at Friday’s game.

Before the homecoming game against East Henderson, the track at the Panther Pit was lined with Franklin High School legends. Last year the FHS Athletic Booster Club took nominations from the public and then narrowed down the search to six inductees, who each embody the pride and dedication it takes to be a Panther. Those individuals were honored as the first round of inductees to Franklin's Athletic Hall of Fame.

The first honoree was not only recognized for his accomplishments as an athlete at Franklin High School, but was honored for his contributions to athletics on the collegiate level.
