Rose Hill hair stylist receives $1,200 Helping Hand
We met Tami Herrman in early August. She's a hair dresser in Rose Hill who one of her client says is an amazing person.
"I just love her," said Wanda Morgan. "She's a wonderful person and she surely gives her whole heart to everybody."
She's had some of her clients for decades. Long after they no longer drive, she now picks some of them up, often grabbing them a hamburger on the way.
"I've been doing hair for 45 years and when you do people's hair for that long, you become very close to them, so the little ladies that I've been doing all these years, I like to take care of," said Herrman.
Then twice a year, she travels to Mexico to organize an event benefiting a special needs organization. She's done this for the past 15 years. It makes enough money to feed the kids for the entire year.
With Dustin DeVaughn and Richard James from DeVaughn James Injury Lawyers, we went to her salon and surprised her one day before a trip to Mexico. This time, it was for a book drive so those orphanage kids can have something to read.
"Good morning Tami," said DeVaughn. "We've heard about the amazing things that you're doing in the community and we want to give you a Helping Hand and we're giving a check for $1,200 so that you can continue to help others."
"Oh, Thank you guys," said Herrman. "You surprised me again. Thank you so much, and it will go to all the great organizations that we work for."
True to form, Herrman already had plans to use the money to help others.
"I appreciate it very much, very much," said Herrman.
"Tami, it's people like you that make Kansas such an amazing place. God bless you," said DeVaughn.
