For 2017,  the Women’s College Club of Princeton will be awarding an additional two scholarships, both of which will be needs based.  The Luna Kayser Memorial in memory of her son, Franklin W. Herron, results from a bequest to our organization and will  be awarded  this year and in subsequent years.  The Marjorie White Memorial Scholarship will be given this year in memory of Marge.  For many years Marge served as officer, adviser, and inspiration to the Women’s College Club.  Any club member who had contact with Marge was sure to feel her warmth and her impact.
