The franchise owners of Camden’s Great Clips salon recently awarded a scholarship to Amanda Triguero, a student at the LeGrand Institute of Cosmetology.

Triguero, of Elgin, and thousands of other cosmetology students across North America applied for the 2018 Great Scholarship. To be eligible, cosmetology students submitted their responses to questions related to their strengths, attributes, and career goals in the cosmetology industry.

Industry Relations Manager, Misty Barnes, presented the award on behalf of Great Clips salons in the Columbia area.

“Greatness begins right here, at LeGrand Institute of Cosmetology,” she said.

The Great Scholarship program awards $100,000 each year to cosmetology students throughout North America, with individual awards ranging from $250 to $1,500.

This is just one way that Great Clips connects with cosmetology students to provide an opportunity to jumpstart their career.
