Ji-Yann Chin has won The Friends of Franklin Library Scholarship in Memory of Wilma Winters

Ji-Yann Chin has won The Friends of Franklin Library Scholarship in Memory of Wilma Winters. A 2023 graduate of Franklin High School, Ji-Yann recently received $1,000 toward the cost of a college education.

Students were asked to write an essay about what gives them hope for the future. In her essay, Ji-Yann wrote about some of the frustrations she felt growing up in Franklin. “Nobody pronounced my name right. … and Lunar New Year was never acknowledged. But over time, this all changed.”

At Franklin High, for example, several teachers asked Ji-Yann to email them voice memos so that they could learn to properly pronounce her name. “The fact that so many teachers are using technology as a tool to pronounce their students’ names correctly gives me hope for the future,” Ji-Yann wrote in the winning essay.

Ji-Yann, a first-year student at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, is studying both microbiology and public health. 

The Friends of Franklin Library, an independent, non-profit organization committed to supporting the Franklin Public Library, established its scholarship program in 2014. The annual scholarship is part of several efforts undertaken to honor the late Wilma Winters, a longtime Franklin resident and library supporter. Winters, who had a long career in higher education, worked for many years as a librarian, including at Boston University Medical School and Harvard’s School of Public Health. She spent her retirement years volunteering at the Franklin Public Library.

The scholarship will be awarded again this year to a member of the Class of 2024.

Members of the Friends of Franklin Library’s board recently presented Ji-Yann Chin with a check for winning the Friends’ annual essay contest

The Friends of Franklin Library Announce Scholarship Award to Gwenne Balcius

Gwenne Balcius has won The Friends of Franklin Library Scholarship in Memory of Wilma Winters. Balcius, a 2022 Franklin High School graduate, received $1,000 toward the cost of her college education.

Balcius was selected as the contest winner based on her essay about someone who inspired her. Rather than identify a lone individual, Balcius wrote about the many librarians she encountered during her military family's moves from California to Virginia to Massachusetts. 


"I ask you to consider the collective influence of every librarian I crossed paths with over the course of my life … the librarians with their subtle encouragement as I checked out mountains of books in Carlsbad, the librarian who became one of my first friends in Chesapeake, and the librarians who helped me feel at home in a place I knew I wouldn't stay long," Balcius wrote in her winning essay.


Now in her first year at Clark University in Worcester, Balcius is studying education with plans to pursue an advanced degree in library science. Her goal is to one day become a librarian as inspiring as the ones who influenced her along her own journey.


"In 2022, we received over 30 applications to review and essays to read," said Lisa Rein, president of FoFL's board. "The prompt we chose this past year reflects the continuing challenges from a pandemic and the heroes who help us navigate difficult situations. Gwenne's essay was so heartfelt and aligned well with her affection for libraries and the librarians who work there."


The Friends of Franklin Library, an independent, non-profit organization committed to supporting the Franklin Public Library, established its scholarship program in 2014. The annual scholarship is part of several efforts undertaken to honor the late Wilma Winters, a longtime Franklin resident and library supporter. Winters, who had a long career in higher education, worked for many years as a librarian, including at Boston University Medical School and Harvard's School of Public Health. She spent her retirement years volunteering at the Franklin Public Library.


The scholarship program has assisted college-bound Franklin students in each of the past eight years. It will be awarded again this year to a member of the Class of 2023. Essay entries will be coordinated through the school's guidance department.

6 Tri-County RVTHS Students Awarded 100 Hour Paid Internships

Tri-County RVTHS is pleased to announce six students awarded paid internships from the Work-Based Learning Alliance in partnership with the Governor’s STEM Advisory Council

Tri-County RVTHS Engineering Students participated in a 2022 STEM Week Challenge, a collaborative effort between the Mass STEM Hub and PBLWorks, which tasked students to research an in-demand STEM career that interests them and connect with professionals in those fields. The objective of the challenge was to help students understand how demand for careers changes and what types of opportunities may be available in the future. 

“The most valuable outcome of the STEM Week Challenge project is that our engineering students, through contacting a STEM professional, conducting an interview, creating a presentation and delivering an oral pitch, were able to develop highly transferable networking skills,” said Angela Batt, Engineering Instructor.

Sophomores Kaleigh Stenstrom of Walpole and Gavin Cataldo of Franklin won six 100-hour internships valued at $9,000 for their “hard work, impressive presentations, and polished pitches,” said Jacob Barry, Partnerships and Communication Director at the Mass STEM Hub. The internships awarded grant students 100-hour paid virtual internships available Spring or Summer of 2023. 

These internships are designed to help students develop real-world skills and professional connections while receiving feedback from industry experts. To select the students who would be awarded the scholarships, Engineering instructors tasked students with writing a persuasive essay describing why this opportunity was important and what they would like to gain from the experience. 

The six students selected are Kaleigh Stenstrom of Walpole, Jaimin Farrington Leet of Franklin, Leonardo Oliveira of Plainville, Noah Hurley of Plainville, William Chenette of Medway, and Gavin Cataldo of Franklin. 

These sophomores have the opportunity to work virtually during the Spring or Summer of 2023 at a paid internship facilitated by the Work-Based Learning (WBL) Alliance. “Having the opportunity to work on an internship is a glimpse into the life of upperclassmen on co-op. I look forward to having this experience before my junior year,” commented William Chenette.

Consideration for the scholarship is based on a completed admissions application, a Tri-County senior in good standing, superior academic record, teacher recommendations, interviews with a Dean College Admissions representative and Tri-County School Counselors, and extra-curricular activities, including employment. Many well qualified students applied but Aliyah was selected for the scholarship based on her hard work and dedication, along with her many accolades. “The most rewarding part of teaching is being able to have a student as talented as Aliyah. Her pleasant demeanor, attention to detail, self-motivation, and ability to provide quality projects while being deadline sensitive while help her excel in any field she pursues.” Linda Thompson, Graphics Communication Teacher.
