Congratulations Class of 2009

To the Franklin County School Graduating Class of 2009:

Tomorrow, as each of you take center stage to turn the pages on this all-important chapter in the book of your young lives, please be reminded that whatever you decide to do or wherever you decide to go, make each moment of the rest of your lives count.

Seize every opportunity to make someone smile, don’t be bearers of dissent, be lovers of peace, community and family.

Although this maybe the end of a chapter, it’s also a fresh new beginning, full of promises for those of you who are willing to work hard and put Christ foremost.

As you move forward in life, please know that the Apalachicola Board of City Commissioners and staff are behind you and we wish you the very best.
