Franzen Intermediate >

Elmer H. Franzen (1891 – 1978) was an active member of the community. He was a member of the Itasca Fire Department and participated in a number of community music groups. He was the President of the Itasca State Bank but is perhaps best known for being a school board member from 1933-1946. He headed the three man school board for seven years and was the first president of the seven member school board. In 1964, the school board named the new elementary school to honor him for his unselfish commitment and dedication to the children of Itasca.

A portrait of Elmer H. Franzen and a plaque in his honor are located in the main hallway of Elmer H. Franzen Intermediate School.
