Congratulations to Amber Barradell for being recognized as Aveda Institute Covington’s May Student of the Month!
Amber was chosen as our student of the month because she is a model student all around. She has consistently maintained a 100% attendance rate throughout her time with us (last 8 months and graduates on Sept 10, 2016). Her continuing guests adore her, and she is always willing to take on new guests who have challenges with their hair. Her books stay booked and if she has any “free time” she is in the break room or on our picnic benches studying. She has a gracious and respectful rapport with our educators and staff. She also goes above and beyond to help encourage her fellow classmates with their studies.
She chose Aveda because we were one of the first beauty schools to come up when she was doing her research for the best beauty schools to attend. She said she fell in love with the school when she first met with Bradley our admissions manager. She felt very welcomed and “at home” here while on her tour. She love the environment of the school and that our school allowed students to take guests all day to gain the salon experience.
She graduated from Hancock High School in Kiln, Mississippi. She moved from Picayune, MS to Covington just to attend our school. She works at Rue 21 in Covington and loves her job. She participated in Tobacco Free Coalition while in high school and if she was still living in Mississippi now, she would still be participating in the organization.
Congratulations Amber! We are excited to watch you grow into a successful career in the beauty industry!
