MESSAGE FROM THE AACS PRESIDENT AND CEA CHAIR
It Takes a Village... and so Much More!
NOW, MORE THAN EVER, our village is expanding into a township! Of course we have our small block inside our schools—front desk, instructors, admissions, ﬁ nancial aid, student services, academic advisor and accounting, all presided over by the president. Daily we are visited by our students, their parents, our clients and their friends, area salon owners looking for new recruits, even alumni drop in! What a busy household! Naturally our household can only run with the help of an electrician, a plumber on retainer, an IT company and a certiﬁed handy man. While we have retired the candlestick maker, he was replaced by our Internet provider, who is sometimes the phone man. Constantly WELCOME TO THE NEW YEAR!
