About Donna Dungy: Cosmetology instructor and so much more
Donna Dungy has been in the cosmetology industry for over thirty years as a cosmetologist, salon owner, instructor, and was most recently appointed the newest board member with the Minnesota Board of Cosmetology as the Private School Instructor Member. The Minnesota Board of Cosmetology feels that Donna Dungy offers an expertise and perspective that will add great value for the Board, licensees, and the public. She has been an instructor at the Minnesota School of Cosmetology for 13 years! We have been lucky to have her and her giving heart in our “family” for so long. While Donna is an instructor at the school, she continues to work at Blessings Salon in St. Paul, MN also. She has worked at Blessings Salon for over 13 years a stylist.
Donna has a fierce passion for supporting students and giving them the best education possible. Donna truly believes that continuous education is key in the cosmetology industry. She also has a huge heart and loves to give back in any way she can. Not only is Donna there for the students, to help them when needed, but she also gives back to the community.
Donna and the Minnesota School of Cosmetology have been part of the Shriners Hospital Prom since the beginning, in 2010. She puts in time and effort each year to organize a group of our students to do free hair styles, nails, and makeup for the prom attendees. The students always love doing this event, to be able to put a smile on the faces of the patients attending prom, by making them feel beautiful and special!
It is apparent how important it is to Donna to be the best instructor she can be. She gives her all to the students every day she is teaching. Donna challenges them positively, in order to provide opportunities for growth in their education. She has been called a “spitfire” because of her high energy and passion that she brings to the students’ education. Donna does what it takes to help prepare the Minneosta School of Cosmetology students for the real world and stay on track to graduate and be as successful as they can be! Thanks to Miss Donna for all of her hard work and dedication at our school, students and the cosmetology industry!
