Walking onto Franklin County High School's campus, people automatically know that Eagles value education and athletics, as seen in the many buildings and athletic fields that make up the campus. However, music is also a priority here, and students taking the musical theatre, choir, and band programs believe it should be a priority at all levels of school. So, on March 16, musicians from the middle and high school presented "Music in Our Schools," a musical performance for elementary students that showcases secondary students' musical talent and advocates for the performing arts.
