It is always gratifying to see our graduates succeed in their business ventures. We feel honored that so many have decided to put their trust in The American School of Protocol®. To hear a graduate express how we have guided them down the path to success is truly inspiring.
Donna Knorr a graduate from the October 2010 Children’s Etiquette Certification Program has been working hard to share her knowledge of etiquette and protocol. Donna recently opened The Piedmont School of Etiquette in Concord, North Carolina. One-hour workshops and week-long classes have been keeping her busy. Donna is teaching an etiquette class at a Christian School and also conducting private lessons. Local NC newspapers have featured Donna and The Piedmont School of Etiquette in articles. She believes that there is a real need for good manners in our country today.
At a young age, Donna competed in beauty pageants and modeling. This is where she learned the importance of etiquette. Donna began her career by teaching diction at a modeling agency and public speaking for Cabarrus College of Health and Sciences. Opening her own etiquette school was always on her mind, she was just waiting for the right time. Good luck Donna! Congratulations on following your dream.
