Five Franklin High School seniors were recently awarded $1,000 college scholarships by the Franklin Women’s Club.

The honorees, who received their awards during a May 16 ceremony, are Heather Attanasio, Taylor Breen, Jada Edwards, Jamie Greene and Molly Swayne, according to a press release from the club.

Funds for college scholarships were raised through the Franklin Woman Club’s annual Tricky Tray Fundraiser. The club will also donate funds toward a scholarship for an Elijah’s Promise Culinary School student.

Recipients of these scholarships were selected based on scholastic achievement, community service, school activity participation and displays of leadership along with letters of recommendation, according to the release.

The Franklin Woman’s Club has been offering scholarships to female FHS seniors for more than 25 years.

“We are always impressed by the large number of qualified applicants that apply for this scholarship every year from our town,” Jodi Viaud, FWC education chair, said in the release. “It is amazing how actively involved these young ladies are with their schools and their communities, and are still able to excel in their academics.”

Members of the Scholarship Committee who reviewed all applications and presented them to the club’s board for final selection were Viaud, Lisa Andreini, Joanne Murset, Carolyn Solimine and Kim Thorne.

The Franklin Woman’s Club, part of the General and New Jersey State Federations of Women’s Clubs, is a nonprofit, nonpartisan and nonsectarian service organization committed to improving the community through volunteerism.

The General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC) is an international women’s organization with over 80,000 members in affiliated clubs in every state, the District of Columbia, and more than a dozen countries. GFWC members work in their own communities to support the arts, preserve natural resources, advance education, promote healthy lifestyles, encourage civic involvement and work toward world peace and understanding.

In addition to community initiatives, the Franklin Woman’s Club also features frequent social and educational events for enrichment.
