Fran Schofield named Commonwealth Heroine by Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women

OSTERVILLE, JUNE 23 – Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Robert Paul Properties, a division of Commonwealth Realty Group, LLC, is pleased to announce that Realtor Fran Schofield has recently been named a Commonwealth Heroine by the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women (MCSW).

The MCSW celebrated the 20th Annual Commonwealth Heroines Class of 2023 on Friday, June 23, 2023, at the Massachusetts Statehouse in the Great Hall of Flags. Each year the Commission partners with state legislators to identify women who make outstanding contributions to their organizations and in their communities. Each legislator is encouraged to submit one woman from their constituency as a means of recognizing their invaluable efforts and extraordinary acts of service, who are making a big difference in their communities but not necessarily making the news.

Schofield was nominated by state Rep. Christopher Flanagan (D-1st Barnstable District, representing Brewster, Dennis, and Yarmouth) to receive the award.

“Fran has been a quiet but powerful force in political and environmental realms on Cape Cod for nearly 20 years,” said Rep. Flanagan. “She was an indefatigable volunteer for the Climate Collaborative and played a critical role in its exponential growth over the last seven+ years. Through her work, the organization now convenes environmental, business, energy, activist, and policy leaders from across the Cape and represents more than 3,000 stakeholders around the region. Fran is a widely respected and effective community leader, and I was honored to nominate here” he continued.

“This prestigious recognition is a testament to Fran’s exceptional dedication, unwavering commitment, and remarkable contributions to the communities we serve,” added Robert Paul Properties President Emily Clark.

The Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women is an independent state agency that was legislatively established in 1998 to support equal opportunities for women in the Commonwealth in all areas of life and to promote their advancement.
