MODERN SALON Media has named the 2016 class of “Excellence in Education” honorees in its sixth annual program recognizing leadership and best practices among cosmetology schools. The Salon Professional Academy of Appleton, Wisconsin, was chosen to represent excellence in the category of Community Involvement. MODERN SALON Publisher Steve Reiss announced the honorees during the AACS (American Association of Cosmetology Schools) 2016 convention in Orlando, Florida on November 5th.
Honorees were determined based on key criteria in each category, and grouped according to number of locations. Honorees were chosen in each category—one individual school location, and a multi-location school organization.
“We received applications from cosmetology schools across the country and look forward to celebrating all the 2016 Excellence in Education honorees and sharing their stories. It is truly a great time to pursue a beauty education and career, and the program at The Salon Professional Academy exemplifies that fact,” MODERN SALON Editorial Director Michele Musgrove says.
Josif Wittnik, owner of The Salon Professional Academy said, “We are very proud to have earned this recognition from Modern Salon. We truly believe the training and education we provide our students will help them learn better, earn better, and live better.”
Sharing stories of innovation, inspiration and collaboration from a diverse group of leading schools is an important part of MODERN SALON’s “Excellence in Education” mission, Musgrove explains. “We want to help spread the word about the exceptional work cosmetology schools are doing to help launch beautiful careers. We hope the professional salon industry and their communities will join us in celebrating them.”
