It’s Never Too Late to Letter

Frank gets his letter

Recently Franklin Macon returned to his Junior High and the Principal Gave Him A Letter and Pin!

You have heard Frank say, “Never Give Up!”  Why? You just never know what will come of it.

When Frank attended North Junior High School in 1935, Frank could barely read let alone get an academic letter. Back then, he knew he had to figure reading out. He worked hard. He didn’t like reading, but that was not an excuse to let his dyslexia stop him from reaching a dream. Flying!

As you know, Frank did not quit.

On Monday, October 8, 2018 Frank showed the world what not quitting looks like. He marched right into to his beloved North Junior High School with the book about his life. A dyslexic, a pilot, a mechanic, a Tuskegee Airman, and an author who in 6th grade could hardly read.

For that, the principal Christopher Kilroy presented Frank with an academic/athletic letter and pin as a symbol of his great accomplishments.
