Summit Salon Academy Honored for Community Involvement, Facilities, Marketing, Nails and 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. Summit Salon Academy of Tampa, Florida, was chosen to represent excellence in the following categories: Community Involvement, Facilities, Marketing, Nails and 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 Summit Salon Academy exemplifies that fact,” MODERN SALON Editorial Director Michele Musgrove says.

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.”
