Donation - Larry Brooks Memorial Scholarship Program
Make a donation to the Larry Brooks Memorial Scholarship Program. The NBTSG is proud to announce the Larry Brooks Memorial Scholarship Program. Larry Brooks, the founder of our organization, passed away in 2017. He, along with his wife Linda, his son Dennis and daughter-in-law Tonya, set up the National Beauty Tool Sharpeners Guild in 2009. The main value and basic premise of the NBTSG was the education and training of quality sharpeners. To honor Larry Brooks and continue in the spirit of the organization the board of directors has established a way that any member in good standing can be eligible to be awarded free admittance to the annual convention on Saturday & Sunday and attendance at Guild workshops of their choice during pre-convention activities on Friday.
