In the News: Dean commencement, Garden Club, Fitness fund raising

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin
"Franklin resident Allison Clarke will speak on behalf of the School of Continuing Studies students at Dean College’s 150th commencement ceremony at 11 a.m. May 14 at Dean College, 99 Main St. Clarke is a business major who will receive her associate degree at Dean College. She has appeared on the dean’s list and will graduate magna cum laude. 
“I am grateful for Dean’s School of Continuing Studies,” said Clarke. “Without this program, I would not have been able to achieve getting a degree. Going back to school showed me that I can juggle working two to three jobs, a family and school effectively. Dean has extraordinary professors who made a huge impact on me through their personal stories and lessons. I am very lucky to have had the best professors throughout my college journey.”
