Senior Spotlight

Attention, Class of 2021 Seniors and Parents! The FC Band Boosters is planning a social media campaign over the coming weeks to recognize the achievements of our Senior class. We will post a few photos of each Senior, along with the biographical information that was printed in the Senior Night program during Marching Band season*.

Please send an email to vicepresident@fcbands.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.

IMPORTANT: If you wish to opt-out of this campaign, please send an email to vicepresident@fcbands.org with “OPT OUT” in the subject line no later than Wednesday , April 21st.

Thanks, and the best of luck to each of you in your future endeavors!
