Franklin Military Academy hosts second annual back to school rally

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Franklin Military Academy had its second annual back to school rally today.


The theme was “stop the violence, inspire a vision.”

A massive vision board was outside for kids to write their goals.

8News spoke with Nicole Fields, the executive director of No More Excuses, which helped organize the event.


“No dream is too small. If your 5-year-old says hey mom, I want to be Spiderman, set a plan for that. If that means he wears red and blue every day, encourage him to dream. Encourage him to have a passion and desire to do something,” Fields said.

No more excuses is a non-profit designed to inspire, empower and encourage women and children.
