See Recipient Bio Below:

“My name is Danielle Davis I was born and raised in Florida and moved to Kentucky in 2007 with my family. A graduate from Washington County High School, I work at a 59-bed long-term care facility and have found working in the food services department to be a rewarding learning experience. As I begin working towards the next step in a food services career, I look forward to learning new and innovative ideas to incorporate into my everyday work and home life. A big part of my life is caring for my son, my mother and her declining health, and my four younger siblings. I am grateful for the opportunity that this scholarship has presented me with not only academically, but at a chance to better my life.”
