“It’s the first NEW four-year college to ever be approved for programs in the state of Wisconsin by the Educational Approval Program, a division of the Department of Safety and Professional Services. It’s the first designated fashion college in the Midwest, and the first four-year college in the state with minority leadership,”Lynne.

“It only took 100 years. Edessa went to Tuskegee University and graduated in 1920, and in 2020 the school was approved,”Lynne. “She went on to say that she taught me how to sew and handed me a career.”
