Out of Sherrills University

Mr. Eric Cheek

All the way from his hometown of Henderson, NC, Mr. Cheek paid a visit to his former school to inspire and encourage the upcoming professionals out of Sherrill's University. Since his graduation in 1998, he has made some amazing lead way in his career as a professional barber. Being featured in magazines and winning trophies from the such as the Bronner Brothers Hair Show and owning his own successful barber shop and salon called E-Clips Barber and Beauty Center in Henderson, NC. Mr. Cheek brings the experience of over 10 years as a professional barber with no intentions of slowing down. It was an honor to have met such a man of his caliber and refreshing to see a black man who is not opposed to helping and teaching those who are eager to learn.
Some words I remember him saying to us, "People are in your life only for a season. If you want to stick around awhile to learn all that you can, I got your back. If you grow and want to branch out on your own, I got your back. If you go out and want to come back, I got your back. Whatever. I'm looking for those individuals that will use their talents and license to go get it. Those that are hungry."

God Speed E. Cheek!
