Tricoci Students Win 2014 Beacon Awards
Tricoci University of Beauty Culture (TUBC) is honored to announce that eight of its exceptional cosmetology students have received highly-acclaimed Beacon Awards 2014 from the Professional Beauty Association (PBA).
The following three TUBC students were named as 2014 Beacon Winners, which is the very-best accolade: Joanna Feliciano, Melissa Thompson, and Tasneem Kassamali.
And five more TUBC students received Honorable Mentions: Gabriela Martinez, Kamia McClendon, Aquanetta Nunley, Ivonne Torrano and Hannah Clemens.
These award-winning students are now eligible to attend PBA Beauty Week in Las Vegas (12-15 July 2014), where they will have the opportunity to meet some of the biggest names in the beauty industry and learn cutting-edge cosmetology techniques.
Brian Weed, CEO of Tricoci University of Beauty Culture, explains, “We are so proud of these students. Thousands of cosmetology students enter the Beacon competition every year, but only the very best are presented with an award or honorable mention. This is further evidence of what salons tell us—that our students are consistently the most ‘salon-ready’ among all beauty school graduates.”
