INNOVATE SALON ACADEMY HONORED FOR THE NEXT LEVEL IN MODERN SALON MEDIA’S 2017 “EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION” COSMETOLOGY SCHOOL RECOGNITION PROGRAM
BUFFALO GROVE, IL—MODERN SALON Media has named the 2017 class of “Excellence in Education” honorees in its seventh annual program recognizing leadership and best practices among cosmetology schools. Innovate Salon Academy of South Plainfield, New Jersey, was chosen to represent excellence in the category of The Next Level. MODERN SALON Publisher Steve Reiss announced the honorees during the AACS (American Association of Cosmetology Schools) 2017 convention in Las Vegas on October 21st.
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 2017 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 Innovate Salon
Academy exemplifies that fact,” MODERN SALON Editorial Director Michele Musgrove says.
Donna Hernandez, John & Sean Sickles owners of Innovate Salon 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.”
