MODERN SALON Media has named the 2016 class of “Excellence in Education” honorees in its seventh annual program recognizing leadership and best practices among cosmetology schools. In 2016 Ogle School of Texas was chosen to represent excellence in the category of Marketing & Community Involvement. “School pride and powerful results were very evident this year,” says MODERN SALON Editorial Director Michele Musgrove. “We are so impressed with the variety of top schools in the U.S. that entered MODERN SALON’s 2016 Excellence in Education program. We have chosen a select few that we believe show leadership and best practices that other schools can use to learn and grow.” This marks the 10th time that Ogle School has been honored by Modern Salon for Education in Excellence since 2012. Those 10 wins are spread across 6 categories – Placement, School Culture, Facilities, Community Involvement, Technology and Marketing Innovation. Honorees are determined based on key criteria in each category, and grouped according to school size or number of locations. “We received applications from a record-breaking number of cosmetology schools this year and look forward to celebrating all the 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 Ogle School exemplifies that fact,” MODERN SALON Editorial Director Michele Musgrove says. “We are thrilled by this prestigious accolade from MODERN SALON, an leading industry publication. We’re constantly striving to spread the mission of Ogle School and attract new students, so it’s an honor to be recognized in marketing and community involvement this year.” Ogle School CEO John Blair 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. “On behalf of the entire professional beauty industry, we express gratitude that there are so many professional cosmetology schools continuing to do amazing and valuable work to shape the future of beauty,” says MODERN SALON Publisher Steve Reiss. “The purpose of Excellence in Education is to make sure more of these great schools get the attention they deserve.” For more information about Modern Salon’s Excellence in Education Honoree’s, click here.
