“Growing up in Lisle holds a very special place in my heart. I cherish that I was able to build more meaningful relationships because of the tight-knit community that can be found here. I am forever grateful for the Carlin Nalley Foundation supporting me through my education and athletic endeavors. The foundation support was not only present in my high school years, but also expanded into my college athletic career, most recently with my induction to the Lisle Hall of Fame. I am ecstatic to now be able to give back and be a part of the foundation in order to help future generations of Lisle students be successful in accomplishing their goals."
