Minnesota School of Cosmetology-Woodbury student, Katherine Spicer, was recently awarded a Joe Francis Haircare Scholarship. Spicer was one of twenty-seven students across the United States selected to receive the $1,000 Joe Francis Haircare Scholarship, which goes toward tuition costs for cosmetology education.
Since its inception 17 years ago, the Joe Francis Haircare Scholarship Foundation has awarded $250,000 in scholarships. It has grown from seven awards in the foundation’s early years to a record 27 scholarships this year! Each scholarship recipient demonstrated a strong commitment to complete his or her barber or cosmetology education and financial need.
From the Joe Francis website: The Joe Francis Haircare Scholarship Foundation memorializes the life and achievements of Joe Francis, founder of The Barbers Corporation and the franchise systems: Cost Cutters, City Looks Salons, and We Care Hair, now Regis Corporation subsidiaries.
Congrats, Katherine! We are very proud of you!
