A no-nonsense gentle giant who helped shape my character and build a professional identity of being true to self and socially and personally responsible for mankind. A great husband and best friend to my godmother, and a powerhouse of a father and role model to Frank Jr., Wendell and Bert. The family of Sarah Jeanette Crank will always remember you all and call you FAMILY!

Dr. McCain was a special influence to me & my choice of becoming an Aggie. Mr. & Mrs. McCain had been in my life since elementary school. They often taught me the importance of history & how much it means to have a voice & take a stand for what you believe is right. Mr. McCain was a funny & whitty individual. He spoke of how much fun I would have at the NCAT homecoming! He told me I would love becoming an aggie & that was true. If it were not for Mr. McCain I may have ended up at another college. He paved the way for so many young African Americans. I am deeply sadden by his passing. I never got to say goodbye to my hero. I love you Mr. McCain. You are now at peace.

Johnson, Torri
Although I've never had the privilege and honor to meet Mr. McCain before his passing, I just want to let my appreciation of his efforts be known and that I am forever grateful for him and the other gentlemen breathing peace and equality to North Carolina A&T State University as well as the city of Greensboro. I send my prayers and love to his family at this difficult time and as a student at A&T, I will continue to thrive in excellence knowing what was dome for me initially to have that right. Rest In Peace Mr.Franklin McCain! Thank you for everything.
