The Alumni Association – At large
Each year The Alumni Association awarded numerous scholarships based upon the amount of donations received during the previous year.
Thomas Rowe Price Scholarship
In the Class of 1914 there was a 16 year old ready to graduate. According to the Dial then this person was a prankster, his specialty was teasing the girl. He was a member of the Franklin Literary Society, and when he is on the program, his class looked forward to being highly entertained. His nickname was “Doc”, his favorite slang was “by George”, his accomplishment was “playing tennis” and he was famous for his “long legs”. In the “Wanted” section of the yearbook, he stated that he needed “50 lbs of fat”.
In 1937, he founded his famous investment firm and sold it to his former employees in 1971.
That graduated is known now as T. Rowe Price. With the helping hand of Renee Christoph, Global Associate Engagement + Corporate Responsibility, The Alumni Association is very proud to Present the “Thomas Rowe Price Scholarship” to four students with opportunity to renew each year for 4 years.
The Chaney Family Scholarship
Chip, Mark and Jeff Chaney, who graduated in 1971, 1973 and 1975, have gone different directions in their careers and where they decided to live. However, they all look back on their years at FHS as ones where they gained a good education, had a chance to play on various of the school’s teams, and made lifelong friendships. Chip has a dental practice in Tallahassee, Florida. Mark resides in Cockeysville, is the CFO at CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield and is Board Director for United Way of Central MD. Jeff lives in Hawaii and is the Director of Marine Corps Community Services on the island of Oahu.The brothers believe that having the opportunity to participate in athletics, while preparing for their education after FHS, taught them valuable lessons that can’t be learned in a classroom. Therefore, they have requested that The Chaney Family Scholarship be established and awarded each year to a student that has demonstrated the ability to be successful in their educational goals, while being able to contribute to the school’s athletic programs.
Class of 1970s OC Golf Group – Coaches Darr, Wescott and Herring
For a number of year’s a group of 1970s graduates have come together in OC for a weekend of golf, remembering stories of decades past, and just catching up with each other. They have been joined by Coaches Darr, Wescott and Herring. The group has gone in many directions over the past forty years. The three things that they have in common is that they attended Franklin H. S., most played on one or more teams of the three coaches, and that each believe they have benefited from those experiences in some way. With this friendship this group has established this scholarship.
