The 2023 Class of FCWOE inductees include the following: Travis Felts, Carolyn and Waverly Lawrence, Dave Lease, Clyde Parker, Frank Rabil, Jennifer Sing and Mona Sumblin. 

The Franklin Community Wall of Excellence, Inc., founded in 2016, recognizes outstanding alumni, staff, and/or administrators who have been a part of Franklin City Public Schools and who have been successful in their careers or who have made special contributions to the students in Franklin City Public Schools or to the community at large. 

“The Wall” is located at Franklin High School (FHS), adjacent to the gymnasium. Names and photos of each inductee are displayed for generations of Franklin High School students and the community members to see as they walk by on their way to class or an event at FHS.

“This allows our students and citizens to honor and be inspired by some of the many successful people who have graduated from or served the city’s public school system and our community,” FCWOE stated in its release.
