Welcome! Here's what's happening...


"He rolled a log off the high hilltop,
Say 'bout the middle of autumn,
How could he know, 'fore it came to a stop,
They would meet with force at the bottom!"

So, there we were, several administrators of Salon Schools Group, enjoying some wine and planning our strategy for the winter months, when a beautiful young lady approached reluctantly to ask if "Ms. Moore" was at the table.

"I doubt you remember me, but I am Tabetha, Tabetha Pinks. I am the little-girl model from a style show 15 years ago! Because you thought I was so cute, you gave me a full tuition scholarship to attend your school when I grew up!  As I got older, I imagined you were probably just making me feel special, but I never forgot that day, and I never had any doubt that I wanted to attend your school and have a career as a hair professional. I could hardly believe it when I learned that a full scholarship was reserved just for me. Well, here I am with my family, celebrating that I graduate tomorrow and start my career as a professional cosmetologist!"

What a fun "reunion" as we chatted and snapped a few pics with Tabetha, her mother and friends.

There are a thousand reasons we should not have collided at that restaurant- how often we never get around to hearing "the rest of the story". Fortune smiled on us that evening, and we feel so happy to have had the chance to witness the joy of a new grad on her way to a wonderful profession! Good luck, Tabby!

A Milestone

What A Fantastic Day........  October 9, 2012

Today at Nationwide Beauty Academy, we had the honor of recognizing one of our instructors for her ongoing dedication to our purpose.  Mrs. Linda Duke has been an important part of our mission for 10 years and it was a pleasure for me to stand with our students and staff to offer our appreciation for making such a difference every day.  

As I mentioned today, it has been incredibly valuable to me to hear time and time again the value Mrs. Duke brings to our organization from the individuals that have direct contact with her the most....our students. 

Oh.....and it was Mrs. Duke's birthday.  Shhhhhh.  All together now! Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to you!  Happy birthday, Dear Mrs. Duke, Happy birthday to you!!

Duke 10 Year Recognition

Mrs. Duke, I thank you on behalf of all of us.
