Palmetto State Barber’s Association was founded and initiated by Mr. F.L. Ellison in 1960.
Mr. Ellison gave the Association these encouraging words to move forward and beyond as an organization, “Barber, one who shaves and trims the beard and cuts the hair. The trade of barbering is one of great antiquity.”
Inclusively, this organization was founded on behalf of all licensed barbers in the state of South Carolina for the purpose of bringing together a united net of professional barbers with integrity
loyalty, trustworthiness, to educate and train, to be our brothers’ keeper, to donate to special charity of choice annually, to render community service to provide a college scholarship fund for graduating seniors in good standard with an economical financial need and above all, stand for righteousness.
Palmetto State Barber's Association Chapter 3 CSRA-Augusta was organized July 2010. It is the first and only chapter of Palmetto State Barber's Association in Georgia. PSBA Chapter 3 serves 13 counties in the Central Savannah River Area.
