1st Dean's List Recipient
At her February 13, 2009, graduation ceremony from Paul Mitchell The School San Diego, Breann Johnson became the first Future Professional named to the Paul Mitchell Schools Dean’s List. The award recognizes Future Professionals who maintain a grade of 90% or higher on worksheets and theory tests, complete both Cutting and Color Honors, have 90% or higher attendance, and have a great attitude. In addition to a certificate of achievement, Breann also received personal phone calls from Paul Mitchell CEO and Chairman John Paul DeJoria and Paul Mitchell Schools Dean and Cofounder Winn Claybaugh.
“I was drawn to Paul Mitchell The School because I love making people look beautiful, but some people made me feel like cosmetology wasn’t a real career,” Breann recalls. “I actually registered at the school twice and called to cancel both times because of this insecurity I had about going. The third time I applied, I realized that this career is something I’m going to keep on coming back to because I love it so much. I decided that this time I was going, no matter what.”
In her first few days of school, Breann felt insecure and questioned her decision. “As soon as I had the opportunity, I joined Phase Two and I loved school even more. Then I joined a lot of the other teams and felt better. The more I went and the more I did, the more I seemed to like it,” she says. “Things just kept getting better when I participated in the opportunities I found. I’m so glad I decided to finish what I started because now I have an infinite amount of opportunity ahead of me.”
“It was a pure delight to have Breann as a Future Professional at our school," said Codirector Joyce Douglas. "She always got involved with everything that was going on and took great pleasure doing so. Breann is a shining example of an upcoming rising star. Whichever salon she decides to ‘play’ with will gain a tremendous asset.”
