Emily Warren received a $500 award from the Fr. Yunker Scholarship Fund in 2009. Although her family is originally from Springfield, Emily has lived in Pennsylvania since kindergarten. (Grandmother Sharon Darran, who still lives in Springfield, helped us locate Emily.)
Emily’s scholarship helped her study abroad in Rome, Italy for three months while a student of supply chain management in the A.J. Palumbo School of Business at Duquesne University, a Catholic university in downtown Pittsburgh, PA.
During Emily’s term in Rome, she toured many parts of Italy, as well as several other European countries. After graduating from Duquesne in 2011 with a B.S. in Supply Chain Management, she now works as a district manager for discount grocer ALDI, Inc., in the Pittsburgh area. (Many of us in Springfield are familiar with ALDI, as well.) Emily grew up and went to school in a small, northeastern PA town called Bloomsburg, where she graduated from Bloomsburg High School.
