Andis Awards Scholarship to Aspiring Groomer
Andis Co., a Sturtevant, Wis.-based manufacturer of in small and large animal grooming tools, awarded Amy Ganos of Tucson, Ariz., a full scholarship to California-based Animal Behavior College’s Certified Grooming Instruction Program. She was selected for the scholarship through a social media contest held last year.
“Education is so important and this Andis scholarship means the world to me,” said Amy Ganos. “I love working with my dogs at my local animal care center and can’t wait to continue to do what I love on my journey to becoming a certified groomer.”
Ganos began animal grooming by volunteering at the Pima Animal Care Center. Her shelter work has provided her a place to realize her desire to groom full time and, once she completes her certification, she would like to open up a shop and groom professionally.
Andis will be continuing this scholarship program with a social media contest to be held later in the year. More information on the application process will be released in spring.
In addition to a scholarship program, Andis supplies professional-grade tools and blades to the certification school and offers educational support from seasoned Andis educators to the school’s grooming students.
