LA ROCHE STUDENT RECEIVES ITALIAN-AMERICAN HERITAGE SCHOLARSHIP AND SISTER MATILDA KELLY AAUW INCENTIVE GRANT


7/9/2008

Pittsburgh, July 9, 2008 — Shaler, Pa., resident Nancy Dal Dosso was selected to receive a $5,000 award from the Frank and Josephine Zappala Endowed Scholarship for the academic year 2008-2009, as well as the $1,500 Sister Matilda Kelly American Association of University Women Incentive Grant from the North Hills-McKnight Branch of the AAUW.

Established by the estate of Josephine Zappala, in honor of her friend and former president of La Roche College, Monsignor William A. Kerr, the annual scholarship is offered to full-time students of Italian-American heritage with documented academic potential and participation in extracurricular activities.

The Sister Matilda Kelly AAUW Incentive Grant was created by the North Hills-McKnight Branch of the AAUW to encourage women to complete their college education.

Ms. Dal Dosso, a non-traditional student who was working in the business world prior to deciding to pursue her bachelor’s degree, is currently a senior professional writing major at La Roche College. She is also a provisional respite caregiver for Achieva, western Pennsylvania’s largest provider of comprehensive services and support for children and adults with disabilities and their families.

She is the daughter of Battista and Nives Dal Dasso of Shaler and is a 1992 graduate of Shaler Area High School.
