Katie's Story

Katie Davidson graduated from Kent County High School in 2003 and received a Children’s Home Foundation scholarship to attend Schilling-Douglas School of Hair Design in Newark Delaware. For 11 months, Katie commuted daily from her parent’s home in Worton MD to the school and all the while continued to work on weekends for JBK Ace Hardware in Chestertown MD. Within months of completion of her course work, Katie was hired by Mary McHenry at ‘Images Salon and Day Spa’ in Kennedyville MD. Katie is still at ‘Images’ and loves going to work every single day and she is still grateful to CHF for the scholarship. Jane Hukill, Katie’s CHF sponsor, has watched Katie’s succeed and is thrilled for her. Katie was recently a top 10 nominee for the National Salon Industry Customer Service Award.
