In 2012, the 35th Annual Cimaglia Award was presented by Milady President, Dawn Gerrain. Candidates are either past presidents of AACS and/or those persons with 25 years or more of outstanding performance for continuous service to cosmetology education and the beauty industry.

The nominees for the 2012 Awards were: Cynthia Becher, Sam Federico, Jim Goins and John Halal.

The award, sponsored by Milady and presented by AACS Past Presidents, was presented to Cynthia A. Becher for her honorable contributions to the industry. In her emotional acceptance, Becher said, “It’s truly an honor… I’m shocked.” She fell into the industry but stated that she quickly fell in love with it and acknowledged how generous and rewarding it as been for her. “This industry changed me internally,” she said. “From the bottom of my heart, I can’t tell you enough how I appreciate this.”
