The Carol L. Berthold Scholarship Fund for Dance was created by a bequest in Carol Lohman Berthold's last will and testament.

Carol L. Berthold was born on November 4, 1939, in McDonald, a daughter of Carl J. and Marguerite Allison Lohman.

Mrs. Berthold was a graduate of McDonald High School. She received her bachelor's degree from the University of Pittsburgh and her master's degree in library science from Carnegie Institute of Technology. She worked for Carnegie Library in Pittsburgh as the head librarian for more than 30 years.

On November 2, 1968, she married Alvin Berthold, who died November 7, 2012.

This fund honors Carol love of dancing and desire to share it, by providing scholarships to students pursuing a degree in dance at any accredited post-secondary educational institution.
