Students from Aveda Fredric's Institute Win Beacon Scholarships
For the eighth consecutive year, Aveda Fredric's Institute students have been selected to attend the Annual Symposium and Beacon Program—where cosmetology students get a chance to spend two days with masters of the salon industry. Students Carrie Creech, Sarah Mitchell, Danielle Solazzo and Chelsea Woods represented the Cincinnati-based institute at the 12th Annual Symposium and Beacon program. The Professional Beauty Association selected the students based on their resumes, portfolios and promotional pieces. Four hundred students applied but only 100 received the Beacon scholarship, which pays for tuition at the Symposium. "It is truly an honor and a privilege for our students and it offers them a wonderful opportunity to network and meet potential employers, as well as to learn business information from top industry professionals," said Julie Holzberger, team development and systems director for Aveda Fredric's Institute. —N.G.
