Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2nd annual 50+ Scholarship: Lifelong Learning Contest, designed to help our readers pursue their next career move, hobby or creative passion. We were excited to see the number of entrants, and their passion for lifelong learning.
We are pleased to announce that the winner of the scholarship, as voted by our readers, is Kandi Decarlo!
DeCarlo plans to use the scholarship to take courses in nutrition. As a personal trainer she helps people get healthy and will now be able to give even more advice. She aims to become the “Jillian Michaels” of the older population.
The scholarship winner, Kandi DeCarlo, gave the following statement after learning of her win.
“Everyone who entered the Impowerage 50+ Scholarship Contest is a winner because all of them have goals and dreams and want to continue to grow as people. Just because a person hits a certain age, in my case, 52, does not make them old. What makes a person old is when they no longer have a zest for learning or being active. I really appreciate the opportunity from Impowerage to continue my learning about nutrition and fitness. I am going to continue to help people stay young, no matter what their age.”
