(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.

“Out of all who applied, these two finalists both demonstrated exceptional qualifications to receive the scholarship,” Taylor said. “As a result, the committee decided to make them co-finalists for the award.”

All scholarship applicants were asked to write about the qualities of a good public servant and why public service is important to the community. Each applicant also went through a short interview, conducted this year by Franklin resident Tom Gadowski and Supervisor Taylor.

“The selection committee had a very tough job as we had a number of very qualified students apply this year,” Supervisor Taylor said. “I am pleased with the continued interest in the scholarship and will continue to promote education and development of our younger generations.”

Supervisor Taylor personally funds the scholarship. For additional information, including instructions for Franklin residents who wish to apply or contribute next year, email Supervisor Taylor at steve.taylor@milwcnty.com.
