Phagans School of Hair Design gave $14,000 in scholarship funds to four students at the Sabin-Schellenberg Professional Technical Center in Clackamas on Monday, May 18.
Eligible students needed to be seniors with a 2015 graduation in the Sabin-Schellenberg cosmetology program. To apply, students also needed to get a reference from a cosmetology instructor, then write a one page essay on, “Why I Want To Be A Cosmetologist.”
Phagans Owner, Barbara Climaldi, read each essay and picked the winners: Holly Richardson, $5,000; Shemika Claborne, $3,000; Diana Hernandez, $3,000; and Katelyn Kiker, $3,000. Phagans has been awarding scholarships with Sabin-Schellenberg students for 10 years.
