Franklin Middle School alumni come together for 75th reunion

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

It's a reunion 75 years in the making.

Former students came together at Franklin Middle School today in Cedar Rapids, which was Franklin High School in 1941.

The alumni ate lunch in their old school, took a tour and watched a performance by a current student at Franklin.

The former students reminisced about their time at the school decades ago and remembered the building well.

"You recall walking past a room, and 'oh yes, such and such teacher was in that room, and I had a hard time or I had an easy time in that class,'" Alumnus Dick Talbott said.

The alumni also saying the biggest change they saw in the school was the students.

They said the middle schoolers looked and acted much more mature than 75 years ago.
