Thanks to the generosity of the Nick Frankos Memorial Scholarship Fund, Warren City Schools is once again able to provide turkeys to families of students at each of the district’s five schools.
Several years ago, Mr. Frankos contacted the principals at Lincoln PK-8 School to see if they would be able to distribute 40 turkeys to families of students there. Mr. Frankos delivered the turkeys himself and got to see some of the students whose families were to be recipients. One of the students came up to him privately and thanked him for the donation, telling him that if it weren’t for his kindness, his family wouldn’t be able to have turkey for Thanksgiving.
That memory has stuck with Mr. Frankos through the years, and he has progressively grown his donation to include other buildings beyond Lincoln. This year, through the extreme generosity of Mr. Frankos and the Memorial Fund, the district was able to coordinate efforts at all five WCS buildings.
