The Franklin B. Walter All-Scholastic Award was established in 1989 by Ohio's County Superintendents to recognize student achievement and promote academic accomplishment. Only one senior from each of Ohio's eighty-eight counties is chosen to receive this honor each year. The recipients are the top scholars in their class.
Carpenter, the daughter of Aaron and Audra Carpenter of Cambridge, plans to attend Marietta College and study accounting.
The award bears the name of Dr. Franklin B. Walter, who served as State Superintendent from 1977-1991. His integrity, leadership, optimism, and commitment serve as an example for all. Dr. Walter passed away in 2010 at the age of 80. He left behind a storied legacy that includes this award.
