MODERN SALON Media has released the list of 2013 “Excellence in Education” honorees in MODERN SALON’s annual program recognizing leadership and best practices among cosmetology schools.
MODERN SALON Publisher Steve Reiss presented the complete list of honorees in each class and announced the top tier, “Overall Honorees” for each category during a special presentation at the AACS (American Association of Cosmetology Schools) annual convention in Las Vegas on Saturday, November 16th.
Hundreds of entries were submitted to the Excellence in Education program from cosmetology schools from across North America, in eight categories ranging from marketing to placement to school culture. Honorees were determined in separate classifications based on school size and whether entering as single location or a complete, multi-school organization. Overall honorees were chosen in each category from a list of previously selected list of finalists.
“We continue to be impressed and inspired by the things so many innovative schools are doing to build the future of the professional beauty industry,” said MODERN SALON Editorial Director Michele Musgrove. “Trends for 2013 include great strides in using technology and social media to drive all areas of the school experience and business success, as well as endeavors to strengthen the `whole’ student, including business, life and creative skills. We spotlight a few of the Overall Honorees’ achievements here, and look forward to sharing more of our Excellence in Education schools’ stories, accomplishments and best practices in our magazines, web sites and e-letters.”
The Excellence in Education program has been presented annually since 2010 by MODERN SALON Media with the support of the AACS. All North American schools with students attending since January 1, 2012 were eligible for the 2013 program.
