Capri College Wins National Excellence in Education Award
Capri College has received top honors in the 2013 Excellence in Education program, a national competition that recognizes innovative cosmetology schools across the country. Capri was notified last month that they were nominated in 4 of the 8 categories that comprise the program, including School Culture, Marketing Innovation, Community Involvement, and School Technology.
Capri College had previously been nominated in the Community Involvement, Facilities, and Placement categories, but never received top honors. The winning announcement for their efforts came last week at the American Association of Cosmetology Schools Annual Convention held in Las Vegas, NV.
To be nominated for these awards, schools were asked to submit essays for each category describing how their institution not only embodies excellence in education for their students, but how they are involved in their communities as well as describing the innovation/evolution of their school over the past year. Essays were judged by a panel of industry professions at Modern Salon Magazine. From a field of hundreds of applicants, finalists were narrowed down to 6 schools per category…
Capri’s nominations and 1st place honor demonstrates what Capri College has provided for their past graduates, current students, as well as the communities they serve in Cedar Rapids, Davenport and Dubuque.
