Barber school opens in Reading, PA

Mayor Vaughn D. Spencer helped cut the ceremonial ribbon Monday on the new American Barber Academy, 110 Morgantown Road, financed with a $35,000.00 loan from the city’s Department of Community Development’s microloan program.

The school is owned by George Ortiz Jr., who currently owns and operates New Style Barber Studio on Lancaster Avenue.

The American Barber Academy will provide 1,250 hours of classroom and clinical instruction to prepare students for the state barbering exam.
