Congratulations to Kathy Schooley, our ABWA 2017 Top Ten Nominee for the National Top Ten Women award and our Chapter's Woman of the Year. Kathy has been a member of our Chapter since April 2010 and since that time has held a number of Committee and Leadership positions. Kathy has served as Chair of the Professional Development Committee and as the Chair of the Membership Committee. In addition, she has served as Secretary of the Chapter and is currently the Chapter President. Kathy is a professional Hair Designer and Business Owner. In her application for this award, she states: I didn?t realize I was a real business woman until my affiliation with ABWA. I always had the desire to be an accomplished Hair Designer. ABWA has given me the need to be an accomplished business woman AND the tools to achieve this goal through networking, mentoring and attending regional and national conferences. Kathy, Congratulations and we're proud to have you as a member.
