Caper 2017 in Orlando, Florida proved to be a life-altering experience for Temple Frederick Future Professionals! Caper, a Paul Mitchell Schools’ annual event, is designed to educate and inspire Future Professionals from all over the country.
Every year, several thousand Paul Mitchell Future Professionals gather for this once in a lifetime educational experience designed just for them.
Held at the Coronado Sprints Resort in Walt Disney World, the educational event featured fashion shows, inspiring motivational speakers like John Paul DeJoria and Winn Claybaugh as well as hands-on classes with top stylists and a Career Connection where students could network with salons.
“Caper truly was the best trip ever,” said Colby Nees. “It is hard to fully explain the experience. Where I aspire to be in this industry completely changed during and after Caper. Hearing the professional’s stories of how they got there was very inspirational. It made me realize that I could also one day be a platform artist and achieve big goals!”
Learning Leaders for event included industry icons Robert Cromeans, Lucie Doughty, Diana Schmidtke, Sharon Blaine, Debra Dietrich and Devri Ficklin along with inspirational speakers Kathy Buckley, Geno Stampora, Kelly Cardenas and Cedric King.
“For me it was very motivational. It made me think about what I was doing and where I wanted to go with my future career and how to get there. It helped me to understand where I wanted to be. It changed my mindset and propelled me to dream bigger – the sky is no longer the limit,” said Nichole Adams, Future Professional.
The Temple’s Be Nice or Else team painted over 2,000 tiny fingers in February at two Daddy Daughter Dances in Frederick, Maryland. Participants at both the St. John’s Regional Catholic School and City of Frederick dances were treated to mini manicures and fun conversations. Even some of the dads got in on the fun with a matching nail or two.
“We had such a great time at these events! Watching the daughters spend time with their fathers was a pleasure and so special to witness. Our Future Professionals really made the young girls feel beautiful.” said Evelyn Bourlier, Be Nice or Else Team leader.
Sharon Riser, co-owner of THE TEMPLE: A Paul Mitchell Partner School and THE TEMPLE Annapolis was recently presented with one of the 2016 Leading Women Awards by The Daily Record.
“I was both humbled and grateful to have been chosen to receive this award. It is an honor to be recognized in this way,” said Riser. “I would also like to congratulate all of my peers who were also recognized for their achievements in their respective businesses.”
The Leading Women award, now in its 7th year, is given to women 40 years old or younger in acknowledgment of the tremendous accomplishments they have made in their career and community. Recipients are judged based on professional experience, community involvement and a commitment to inspiring change. Winners are selected by former Top 100 Women and Leading Women winner panel.
“The Daily Record’s 2016 Leading Women are truly inspirational. Their professional accomplishments, community involvement and commitment to inspiring change exemplify why they are Leading Women in Maryland,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “They excel to high levels professionally and personally, and The Daily Record congratulates them on this award.”
