Success Story

Josephine Reina (on right) stopped by the Franklin Woman's Club booth at Franklin Day on September 22, 2018, to thank club members for supporting her education with a 2006 Scholarship Award.  Ms. Reina graduated from Franklin High School in 2006 and from Towson University (Summa Cum Laude) in 2010.  In 2013, she graduated from the University of Baltimore School of Law (Magna Cum Laude). Ms. Reina currently works as an attorney at Malaby & Bradley LLC, in New York, NY.  She is shown here with Joanne Murset, Chair of the club's Tricky Tray Committee. The Franklin Woman's Club annual Tricky Tray raises funds for scholarship awards and other community giving, and will be held next on March 22, 2019.


Congratulations, Ms. Reina and may you have continued success in your career!

2018 Scholarship Awards Dedicated to the Memory of 
Kim Thorne, 2017-2018 
Franklin Woman's Club Co-President 



The Franklin Woman’s Club (FWC) is pleased to announce this year’s scholarship winners: Gabriella Consiglio, Anjana Nair, Karinna Rao, Sierra Schiff, Maitri Shah, Summer Thompson and Madison Whiting. This year, the club dedicated their scholarship awards to the memory of Kim Thorne, who served as the FWC Co-President for the 2017-2018 club year. Sadly, her service was cut short due to her unexpected death in October after a very brief illness. Prior to that, she served in several other club leadership positions, including the founding of its book club.  The FWC is proud that the scholarship award recipients share Kim’s values for education and volunteerism.
