What’s Happening at ACE!














Pink Magazine has published articles about ACE’s Esthetics CATE program.  In the February issue, Mrs. Janie Ginn, Esthetics ACE Instructor, was profiled.  Ms. Ginn implemented Esthetics at ACE as an Innovative program and worked with Dr. Eleanor Glover, SCDE Standards Revisions and Curriculum Resource Development, for two summers identifying the standards required for a student to receive a completer certificate in the program.  Ms. Ginn was a presenter at the 2014 SC Business Summit addressing her program, which this year has become an official SC CATE program.

 In March Anna Ashdown was also profiled.  Anna is a senior Esthetics student.  When she graduates she will be a SC licensed esthetician.  Anna works part-time at FACES DaySpa on Hilton Head.  She plans to use her skills to help support herself when she goes to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of being a professional actress.
