Stu­dents of the North­west Arkansas Ca­reer Academy of Hair De­sign won 27 awards — in­clud­ing 17 gold medals, four sil­ver medals and six bronze medals — at the Arkansas Skills USA Cos­me­tol­ogy Com­pe­ti­tion, held in Hot Springs last month.

Sev­eral stu­dents from Siloam Springs were among the win­ners. The 17 gold medal win­ners were awarded full tu­ition schol­ar­ships to the Univer­sity of Arkansas Mor­ril­ton that can be used for any de­gree, ac­cord­ing to Mar­cia Pet­tit, direc­tor of the school. The gold medal win­ners will ad­vance on to the national cham­pi­onship, to be held in Lex­ing­ton, Ky., in June.

“I’m just re­ally proud of them,” Pet­tit said of her stu­dents. “They worked re­ally hard.”

Ca­reer Academy of Hair De­sign has cam­puses in Rogers, Siloam Springs, Spring­dale, Fayetteville and Fort Smith, ac­cord­ing to the school web­site, www.beau­tynwa.com.
