Attention, Class of 2021 Seniors and Parents! The FC Band Boosters is wrapping up its social media campaign to recognize the achievements of our Senior class. We are posting a few photos of each Senior, along with the biographical information that was printed in the Senior Night program during Marching Band season*.
It’s not too late to be included! Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with 3-5 photos that you feel best reflect your time in the Franklin Central Bands program. These photos will be used on our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts. Be sure to follow and like our accounts to see and share the posts!
Thanks, and the best of luck to each of you in your future endeavors!
