Franklin Family Surprises Students with New Buses

Students, faculty and staff were surprised with two new buses today in a special outdoor pep rally! The buses were made possible due to the generosity of the Franklin family. 

Members of the Franklin family—Wendell and Martha Franklin, and Taylor ’00, Emily and their children, Caymus ’27, Colgin ’29 and Charlotte ’32—unveiled the buses to our lower school students before having the fall varsity captains help surprise our middle and upper school students. 

The two buses, which were wrapped using a Collegiate-inspired design from Emily Franklin, will take our Oaks to athletic competitions and on field trips in comfort and style. The buses each seat 24 people comfortably with room overhead for gear and a flatscreen panel to entertain students during long trips.
