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.”
