Nuts and Bolts Training Company unveiled the winners of its fourth annual International Business Student of the Year (IBSY) Awards on January 29, 2012 at the International Salon & Spa Expo, held at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, CA.

 

Student Heather Dalke of the Eric Fisher Academy in Wichita KS claimed first place in the cosmetology category, taking home $1,000 in cash and a total prize package valued at more than $3,000.  Eric Fisher Academy also claimed a second 1st Place prize when Student Melissa Alvarez did a triumphant walk onstage to accept first place in the esthetics category, along with her $1,000 payday and $3,000 total prize package.

 

“It is truly inspiring to see these students so galvanized to be extraordinary using their Nuts and Bolts education,” said Nuts and Bolts President and CEO Jim Yates. “Everyone wants to succeed – that’s no secret; but without the proper foundation and guidelines, it’s like sailing in the dark. And that’s why I’m so gratified to see these students putting in motion all the tools they’ll need to achieve their goals – and our Nuts and Bolts students dream big! I feel like a proud parent.”

 

Every Nuts and Bolts Member School nominates a top performer to be in the running as an IBSY finalist. The judging criterion is based on: retail sales, up servicing, average ticket sales and overall customer service. Students also had to impress with a 5-minute video showcasing what they’ve learned and how they are applying their Nuts and Bolts training to their career goals.

 

Suzanne Kroon of Cameo College in Salt Lake City, UT, was crowned the winner of the 4th annual Sassoon Academy School Connection (SASC) Cut and Color Competition. Kroon’s cache of prizes includes a five-day ABC Cutting Course at the Sassoon Academy in London ($1,560).

 

More than 175 entrants from SASC Member Schools across North America submitted before and after photos demonstrating their technical skills. The International Sassoon Academy Creative Team in a blind judging process picked the top three winners.

 

“The Sassoon Academy | School Connection Cut & Color Competition entries have grown by 75% in only one year,” said Stephen Moody, Executive Director of International Education. “This spectacular growth is an excellent indication of the continued emphasis our member schools place on encouraging creativity and education in their schools and our industry in general, and each year, the whole Sassoon Academy team truly looks forward to the inspirational work the SA | SC contestants put forward.”

The awards ceremony, hosted in conjunction by industry partners Nuts and Bolts and the Sassoon Academy, recognized the technical talents and business acumen of 13 Nuts and Bolts and Sassoon Academy School Connection students.
