About Mr. William Frangus. Orange County is a better place because of William “Bill” Frangus. He unselfishly devoted most of his life to education, music, and service to others. He began his career as a classroom teacher in 1951. He was the principal of four schools in Orange County: Memorial Junior High (1957-65), Lee Junior High (1965-68), Evans High School (1968-74), and Howard Junior High (1974-78). He returned to Orange County in 1982 as a school board member. He served until November, 1990. As much as Bill loved education and felt a responsibility to our students, he loved music and felt a commitment to share that love with others. His music classes at the Winter Park Community School were well-known and gave the community an opportunity to get to know jazz as he did. Bill enjoyed strong friendships with many jazz greats, such as Louie Armstrong. For years, he hosted a local music talk show on the radio and wrote music related columns for the Winter Park Outlook and The Orlando Sentinel. We are known as the Frangus Jazz and have taken the saxophone as our mascot to honor Bill Frangus and his love for music.
