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.

She works part-time at Showcase Cinemas and enjoys spending her spare time drawing. For her senior project, she created a coloring book that represents the LGBTQA+ community. When she is at home, she spends quality time with her family which includes two younger brothers, a chocolate lab, and three cats. Tessier-Nunez plans to pursue a Communications degree from Dean College. “I would love to pursue a career in radio. My dream job would be creating podcasts, I love listening to them, or in sports broadcasting,” remarked Aliyah.
Dean College is a private, residential, not-for-profit institution that is fully accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE). 

“The Dean College scholarship program allows a Tri-County Student the opportunity to pursue a college education. The generosity of Dean College is remarkable, and we value their partnership,” said Karen Maguire, Superintendent-Director. “This scholarship positively impacts our students and the community. Congratulations Aliyah, from all of us at Tri-County. We know you will do amazing things.”

Dean College Announces the Dr. Pietro (Pete) Savo Criminal Justice Internship in Collaboration with the Franklin Police Department

Dean College has announced the Dr. Pietro (Pete) Pete Savo Criminal Justice Internship, a new program in partnership with the Franklin Police Department. Each semester, one student from Dean College will have the opportunity to intern with the Franklin Police Department and gain valuable experience in the field of law enforcement. Students will be exposed to a variety of aspects pertaining to working on the force and leave with a working knowledge of next steps should they be interested in further pursing a law enforcement career.
 
“Dr. Savo was a tremendous educator,” says Dean College President Dr. Paula M. Rooney. “Students, staff, and faculty are all better for having known him and we are so proud to have Pete’s name on this internship.”
 
The internship is named in honor of Dr. Pietro (Pete) Savo, who passed away unexpectedly in June 2021. A beloved member of the Dean Community, Dr. Savo was an Assistant Professor and Program Coordinator for the Criminal Justice and Homeland Security programs at the College and was coordinating the internship with the Franklin Police Department prior to his passing. Chief of Police Thomas J. Lynch approached Dean with the desire to name the internship after Dr. Savo as a tribute to his work at the College, in the community and in the field. This is the first internship at Dean to be named in honor of an individual.
 
“We are eager to work with Dean College on this exciting opportunity,” says Lynch.
 
The internship will be offered during both the Fall and Spring semesters. Dean College students will be able to earn three credits by completing 96 hours of work-based experience at the Franklin Police Department. Candidates will be nominated by faculty and staff, followed by a formal interview process with the Franklin Police Department for final approval.
 
“Dr. Savo was a teacher in every sense of the word,” says Dr. P. Gerard Shaw, Dean for the Dean College School of Business. “This internship is a tribute to his legacy and to the countless students he has impacted.”
 
For more information about the program, visit www.dean.edu.


Dean College is a private, residential New England college grounded in a culture and tradition that all students deserve the opportunity for academic and personal success. A uniquely supportive community for more than 150 years, Dean has woven together extensive student support and engagement with exceptional teaching and innovative campus activities. Our graduates are lifetime learners who thrive in their careers, embrace social responsibility and demonstrate leadership. This is The Dean Difference.

Boston.com: "Local breweries team up to brew ‘As One,’ which funds a scholarship for people of color"

"Four Massachusetts breweries have joined forces to launch a scholarship with the hopes of bringing more people of color into a majority white industry.

67 Degrees Brewing, Arcpoint Brewing, Crue Brew Brewery, and White Lion Brewing teamed up to brew “As One,” a New England IPA that will be available to the public on March 31. A portion of the proceeds will go toward the creation of a scholarship at Holyoke Community College, and will be available to students of color who are enrolled in the college’s beer, cider, and winemaking program.

The Friends of Franklin Library Scholarship awarded to Emily Vinson

Emily Vinson, a 2020 Franklin High School graduate, has won The Friends of Franklin Library Scholarship in Memory of Wilma Winters. She received $1,000 toward the cost of her college education.

Vinson was selected as the contest winner based on her essay about a book that changed her thinking, "Becoming" by Michelle Obama. The former first lady's autobiography, Vinson wrote, inspired her to persevere through difficulties and to serve her community. 

"In these challenging times today, I hoped what I learned in the book 'Becoming' can help me focus on the positive, recognize there is still good in the world, and help others," Vinson wrote.

Now a Providence College student, Vinson has volunteered at the library, senior center and elsewhere. She also served as a basketball referee through the Franklin Recreation Department, an experience she used in her essay as an example of how perseverance turned her from a soft-spoken, unsure official to a confident one that over time earned the respect of players and coaches.

The Friends of Franklin Library established its scholarship program in 2014 as part of an effort to honor 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. Winters died in 2011, leaving a sizable donation to The Friends. 

The scholarship program has assisted college-bound Franklin students in each of the past seven years. It will be awarded again this year to a member of the Class of 2021.
