Engagement in their communities is an important core value to Excellence in Education honorees.Participating in service projects, cut-a-thons, fashion shows and other initiatives isn’t an option for students; it’s a requirement. But it’s one they love to fulfill as owners strive to offer a variety of opportunities every month for students to choose from.
Excellence in Education honorees are leading the way in utilizing technology to teach.Owners are embracing other high-tech trends in equipment, apps and software as well. Students have come to expect cutting-edge technology in the classroom, and schools are continually stepping up to incorporate new trends, including paperless classrooms.
Finding a job upon graduation from cosmetology school can be a frustrating experience—but not for the graduates of this year’s Excellence in Education honorees.These schools aren’t just focusing on getting their students employed, but also placing them in salons where they will succeed and thrive.
MODERN SALON was proud to add a new category to the Excellence in Education awards this year—Nails. Nails recognizes schools committed to offering their students an important career option while diversifying and building their own business.
