The “Over the Top” Scholarship $1,500
The “Be on B” scholarship is awarded by Summit Salon Academy’s Advisory Board.
A core component of Summit Salon Academy’s Summit Salon™ level system is the “Be on B” principle. As Michael Cole says, “You Gotta Be on B!” It is derived from Summit Salon Business Center’s 4 quadrants of coaching and mentoring.
Be on B means that you possess a positive attitude which puts you in the Top 20 percent in the beauty industry. You live “above the line” in your thinking and marry energetic moods and emotions with a positive attitude to create an optimal environment for growth. Being on B demonstrates characteristics that promote success on the salon floor. This scholarship recognizes those students who have an exceptional drive for continuing education, community awareness, and an overall enthusiastic attitude for the beauty industry and the future that lies ahead.
Denise Soto Scholarship $1,500
Summit Salon Academy – Tampa is thrilled to present a scholarship to a commendable student in the name of Denise Soto who passed away January 15, 2011 of complications from breast cancer. Denise was the owner of Summit Salon Academy in Perrysburg, Ohio. Denise was an intense spiritual person and allowed her faith to provide her direction. Her desire to help others led her to assist families that had children with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, provide support and care for cancer survivors and the YWCA Battered Women’s Shelter. Summit Salon Academy wants to reward a student who shares the same passion for the industry and aspires to be an exemplary role model in their community.
