Franklin students help patients at Riley

A Franklin Community High School senior remembers watching a girl play on her street. They rode the same bus to school.

Then, Jessica Fisher stopped seeing the girl. She later found out the girl had leukemia, and Fisher wanted to help.

Students in Finish Strong, Franklin’s online alternative academy, have been making blankets for kids at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health in Indianapolis since the academy started about three years ago.

About half of the academy’s students make blankets for Project Linus. The effort is part of a national project in which volunteers make blankets for sick children across the country.

Franklin students make about 65 blankets each year, Finish Strong teacher Sheila Turner said.

“Kids have a big heart. They just want to help,” Turner said.
