Age: 18

Residence: Bethel Park

Family: Daughter of Lisa and Steven DeCarlo; brothers, Jared, Scott and Jagger; sister, Gabby

School: Senior at Bethel Park High School

Noteworthy: DeCarlo won the 2013-14 Philanthropic Educational Organization STAR Scholarship, a $2,500 award based on “excellence in leadership, extracurricular activities, community service, academics and potential for future success.”

Hobbies/interests: DeCarlo has worked with less-fortunate people on local service trips organized through St. Valentine Roman Catholic Church in Bethel Park. She plans to study nursing at Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio. She hopes to travel to Gaming, Austria, during her second year at Franciscan University to attend a study-abroad program at Gaming Charterhouse, a 14th Century Carthusian monastery. She plans to earn a doctorate in nursing and work as a nurse practitioner.

Quote: “This scholarship means a lot of things to me, but if I had to pick one monumental thing that this scholarship has brought me, it'd be hope. I never thought I would be able to afford to go to college because of circumstances in my life and in the economy.”
