Re: “Angela Hill going to WWL radio

Ms Hill,
My name is Carolyn a.k.a. Cat and I'm asking for your help. I'm a 63 year-old retiree, single mother of 2 and grandmother to 6. I've worked all my life in positions that ranged from waitressing to operating cranes offshore with several more in between. After beating cancer in 1999, I returned to school and got my license to do hair figuring on being able to do that even after retiring to supplement my income. I graduated and started to work with a company called Fantastic Sams' in Westwego in 2000. After working there a couple of years, I was promoted to the manager position of the Gretna salon by Home Depot on the expressway. A couple of years later, after turning the salon around into a profitable venture, I was made manager of the Westwego salon and a year or so later, the Marrero salon was added to my list. These salons were tooling along and on the road to success when the owner decided to sell the franchise to one of the stylists who had been with the company for many years. Things changed and I decided to open my own salon out of my home and retire. Recently, the owners asked me to come back onboard in a consulting capacity to help out. Long story short, I've been offered the Westwego salon (starting point for me) and am now applying for a grant to get money to infuse life back into the salon. I'm sure you're aware of the Chase/Google program. This is the grant I've applied for and my application process is now in the voting phase. I must have 250 votes by 11/15/2013 in order to continue on to the selection phase. This is where the grant board reviews the applications, the answers we gave to their questions, and then makes their decisions. It's fine with them to ask for the medias' assistance and I thought of you first. I listen to you and Mr. Robinette daily and am asking you to please assist me in getting the word out to people to vote for me. They need only spend a few seconds to go to the site, where they will be directed to a vote page. There they type in Fantastic Sams and hit the little magnifying glass search icon. Fantastic Sams Marrero will come up...that's me. My home business is Cat's Family Hair Design dba Fantastic Sams', hence the Marrero location. The salon is in the heart of Westwego. I know I can make this salon into a success. It's in a promising location, Westwego is growing and the staff I have is multi-talented. Please do all you can to help out with this venture, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart,
Carolyn Thornhill (aka Cat)
