During the month of March, the Franklin-McKinley School District will recognize and honor womxn's history month by encouraging our schools and partners to empower young womxn through lesson plans and activities.
We also want to take a moment and recognize Iola Williams, former Franklin-McKinley Board of Education member. She served on the Board for 12 years until her appointment to the San Jose City Council in 1979. She was known as a champion of minority and womxn's rights. She was also instrumental in the creation of the African American Military History Museum, located in Mississippi. Read more about Iola Williams here.
