Warsaw Community Schools recently welcomed Thomas Franklin to share his journey as an award-winning photographer, multimedia journalist, documentary filmmaker and college professor.

Franklin is best known for his iconic flag raising image taken at ground zero of the World Trade Center immediately after the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001. This widely recognized photograph was featured on the United States Postal Service’s heroes fundraising stamp. Proceeds from these stamps have generated over $10 million dollars for those affected by 9/11.

A Pulitzer Prize finalist in 2002, Franklin’s image was cited by Life as one of the “100 Photographs That Changed the World.” The photo has become part of a permanent collection of the library of congress, the Newseum and the National September 11 Museum.

Franklin first met with students of Warsaw Community High School during a special convocation honoring veterans in the Warsaw Performing Arts Center. The event featured the presentation of colors by the WCHS JROTC program; the performance of the “National Anthem” by WCHS select choral as well as the singing of the “Star Spangled Banner” and “America the Beautiful” by the WCHS choir.

Franklin shared his experience as a multi-media journalist at the scene of the World Trade Center and the incredible effect his photos had not only on his life, but the lives of others. 

Following the Veterans Day program, Franklin met with high school photography and journalism students to share tips and advice for students interested in multi-media communications. Approximately 86 students had the unique opportunity to engage with Franklin in a classroom setting to learn more about his techniques and the artistic process behind “making a photo.” A question and answer session followed this presentation with an opportunity for students to take a group photo with Franklin at the close of the session.

Franklin concluded his visit with a presentation to Warsaw Community Schools' fifth grade students in the Warsaw PAC. During this presentation, Franklin encouraged students to pursue their dreams and goals while enriching the lives of others.
Warsaw Community High School students met Monday, Nov. 13, to present a check to the K21 Kosciusko Cancer Care Fund totaling $3,087.80.

The donation follows fundraising done by students and staff during the annual breast cancer awareness pink out game. Though WCHS played against Wawasee High School, both schools worked together to help raise funds before and during the game for the cause.

“WCS students participated in an annual fundraising competition with Wawasee High School on Sept. 29 to raise awareness and funds for the Kosciusko County Cancer Care Fund,” noted Troy Akers, principal of WCHS. “The competition was highlighted by all WCHS administrators having their hair dyed pink for the school day and the game. Over $3,000.00 went from Warsaw students and patrons to assist those in need. Great job Tigers!”

Fundraising activities prior to the pink out game included various spirit days and events such as a staff jeans day, the sale of pink t-shirts and collections held in the cafeteria.
