Excellence in Education Award!
Owners Karen and Michael attended the the Annual AACS Convention and Expo in Phoenix, AZ in October 2015. While there, they accepted Modern Salon‘s Excellence in Education Award for Community Involvement.
This time of year, everyone starts thinking about what they are thankful for. We are thankful for our community. We are thankful to have the opportunity and the platform to sponsor causes and charities that help people in our community. This is why we are so happy to sponsor and support Wings of Karen– a Breast Cancer Research Organization that funds many researchers in our own backyard. In founding Wings of Karen with a passionate group of volunteers, Kristi Blair’s goal is to encourage ownership, accountability and support within communities by keeping efforts local – from start to finish, awareness to cure.
MODERN SALON’s Excellence in Education annual recognition program celebrates leading cosmetology schools, highlighting innovative programs and best practices in eight categories and two divisions (single location and multi-unit schools).The 2015 Excellence in Education honorees were announced October 24 at the American Association of Cosmetology Schools conference in Phoenix, Arizona. Among 38 schools recognized, top honorees were named in each category. “There are so many beauty schools out there doing amazing work,”MODERN SALON Media Vice President/Group Publisher Steve Reiss says. “We’d like to make sure they get the attention they deserve—especially at a time when our industry seems to have so many challenges. Excellence in Education gives us an opportunity to recognize their best practices and the wonderful job they are doing educating the next generation of professional stylists.”
We are very honored to receive this award because community involvement is one of our core values. We strongly believe in giving back to our community because without our community, we would be nowhere. Thank you Modern Salon and AACS!
