Before students at Franklin Community High School met their teachers and went over what’s expected for the school year, they remembered three classmates who weren’t there.
Jason Moran and Michael Chadbourne would have started their senior year at Franklin on Wednesday. They died in June trying to save their friend, Franklin junior Sarah McLevish, who was swept over the dam at the Big Blue River. McLevish, 16, has been hospitalized since the tragedy.
Two other Franklin students who also tried to help, Mark Nally and Trent Crabb, were unharmed.
