(FRANKLIN, WI) – Maggie Roemer and Sydney Kirkegaard of Franklin High School have been named 2013 winners of the “Steve F. Taylor Future Leaders of Franklin Scholarship,” Supervisor Steve Taylor announced today. Roemer, a junior, and Kirkegaard, a senior, will each receive $300 scholarships as winners of the award.
