More than 70 Franklin students recognized at graduation

More than 70 Franklin graduates were recognized at commencement for having high grade-point averages, and for the second year students weren’t competing against each other for the honor.

Last year, Franklin decided to stop recognizing only the two students with the highest GPAs. School officials were concerned that students hoping to be named valedictorian or salutatorian would take easier courses where they had better chances of earning A’s, instead of more rigorous courses that would challenge them and better prepare them for college.

Now, Franklin recognizes graduates who finish high school with a GPA of 3.67 or higher with medals at graduation.
