Cosmetologists Chicago, one of the largest beauty associations in the Midwest, recently recognized a Maywood cosmetology student as its outstanding student of the month for March.
The association said in a statement that it selected Claudia Maldonado, who attends Ms. Roberts Beauty Academy, 552 Mannheim Rd. in Hillside, “for her attitude.”
“Claudia completes every task with a smile and with excellence, and doesn’t complain,” said Euretta Ivy, the owner of Ms. Roberts.
“She is truly dedicated to her craft and passionate about her education,” she added. “Her integrity is unmatched, and she is always willing to help her classmates, even though she herself has overcome many obstacles.”

According to CC’s statement, Maldonado has always desired to become a beautician, but she “put her own dreams on hold to put family first. Now finally a student, she hopes to be educating others in five years.”
Cosmetology students like Maldonado are the “future of the beauty business,” said Paul Dykstra, CC’s CEO.
“It’s important for consumers to know that our professional organization recognizes outstanding educational performance,” he said. “Consumers should feel confident knowing that our students who will be entering the work force are the best trained ever.”
Cosmetologists Chicago owns and produces America’s Beauty Show, “which attracts an attendance of over 80,000 salon professionals to view over 400 beauty exhibits from all over the world,” according to the association’s statement. VFP
