What Our Students Are Saying

The Lanes didn't just open a hair school, they opened a great school. They wanted to be great. 


And I think like I always have, but I didn't really put a finger on exactly what it was I was doing in this world until I spent my year at Champions Barbering Institute, and getting to have this incubator situation where I really started to hone the craft of recognizing greatness, it was what I was doing. I didn't realize it until probably about a month ago, this is powerful.”

       - 2019 Graduate

Being at Champions Barbering Institute has allowed me to grow knowledgeable in areas I couldn't imagine. I'm learning what it means to be a professional barber and an upstanding person of character, on and off the floor. I feel so blessed to be a part of this school and look forward to becoming a well-rounded barber in the future! Being at this school makes me feel like everything is possible. CHAMPIONS!!!!                - 2018 Graduate

My journey started when I went into Mrs. Lane's office, I was like, I'm thinking about doing this barbering thing. The only problem is I have no idea how to cut hair. And really I just want to change communities and that's all I wanted. I mostly desired to walk alongside men as we learned together what it means to be dads, husbands, brothers, co-workers, and friends. And, her answer to that was cool, we'll teach you how to cut hair. We want people who want to change communities. And that's how it all started. And that's what they did at CBI.                          - 2019 Graduate

Be Great University created an atmosphere where I was able to connect with people during the prime time of the Covid-19 pandemic. It gave me the ability to change, not only how I work and operate, but also how I view my perception and take steps toward my version of success. I was able to write my book because of the accountability I received via the group. The Lanes have created a step by step process on how to find your inner purpose through growth and development.             - Cultivating Greatness Participant
