Summer 2014 Academy Graduation


Sunday July 20th was an evening of celebration as graduates of Gene Juarez Academy gathered at Benaroya Hall in Downtown Seattle. The graduation ceremony marks the end of one stage in their lives, and the beginning of an amazing career in beauty. Mr. Gene Juarez was in attendance as the Keynote Speaker and shared stories of how he got started and the amazing opportunities that a career as a cosmetologist afforded him. He had many words of wisdom and shared his wish that he hoped the next Gene Juarez was sitting in the audience.

We’d like to congratulate the following award recipients:

Valedictorians: Olga Sidlinskya and Rachel Burrow
Guest Service Award: Alina Ham, Kendra Harrington, Sasha Wetzsteon and Hannah Wilson
Most Inspirational: Sasha Wetzsteon, Lilian Vanek, Niiaja Richie, Sidney Ramsey
Gene Juarez Academy: Olga Sidlinskya, Holly Huff, Madison Zappone-Casey, Nichole Loomis

The valedictorian from our North Seattle Campus, Olga Sidlinskya said, “I came here to get the knowledge and training for a lifetime; not only did I get that but also had the greatest experience making friendships that will last a lifetime. As life goes on, so does our future and I believe that we are in control of it. This was just a little segment in our life but what we make out of it will change our lives forever.”
