$2 MILLION REASONS TO CELEBRATE!

THE TEMPLE: A Paul Mitchell Partner School Announces 20th Anniversary Scholarship Recipient

Twenty years ago, successful beauty school owner Winn Claybaugh and Paul Mitchell Chairman and Co-founder John Paul DeJoria opened their first Paul Mitchell School in Costa Mesa, California. Now the network is more than 100 schools strong, and they’re celebrating their 20th anniversary with over $2 million in full-tuition scholarships.

Locally, THE TEMPLE: A Paul Mitchell Partner School awarded a full-tuition scholarship to Adrianna Bussey from Thurmont, MD.

Adrianna’s application was one of many entries to the scholarship contest but stood out for her years of passion already dedicated to the beauty industry at such a young age. She is an exceptional young lady who plans to give back to the community through her gained knowledge at The Temple: A Paul Mitchell Partner School.

Each year, thousands of students and team members from the nationwide network of Paul Mitchell cosmetology schools support a variety of local and national charities with their time, talent, and energy, donating over $22 million in the past 17 years. Because of their commitment to a “giving back” culture and their dedication to service, participating schools offered full-tuition scholarships to qualified applicants who plan to use their Paul Mitchell School education to give back to their local community.

Winn Claybaugh, dean and cofounder of Paul Mitchell Schools, says, “We have an opportunity to share, and we want to recognize students who are making the world a better place.”

The co-owners Charles and Sharon Riser had this to say, “This was a wonderful way to celebrate the culture of Paul Mitchell Schools. It was great to be able to make a difference in the life of so many that are already doing just that and want to be able to continue the same through the Beauty Industry.”

ABOUT PAUL MITCHELL SCHOOLS

At Paul Mitchell Schools, we believe that education is an adventure and the learning experience needs to be fun and well rounded. During the Covid-19 pandemic, we quickly developed distance and hybrid courses to provide safe, uninterrupted, quality education and support to our students and team members. Whether delivered in person or virtually, our courses focus on important theory, practical, and business skills with an emphasis on social and community responsibility. Our learning leaders are trained to draw out the artist in our students and prepare them to enter their chosen careers as community-conscious salon, barbershop, beauty, and spa professionals.

Through our annual “FUNraising” campaign, we’ve raised and donated over $22 million in support of many charitable causes. We’ve built homes with Habitat for Humanity, helped hospitalized children through Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, fed thousands of African orphans, assisted veterans and first responders, built clean water wells in struggling nations, and supported the victims of AIDS, human trafficking, breast cancer, homelessness, domestic abuse, and hundreds of other causes.

Established over 40 years ago, the Paul Mitchell network is nearly 50,000 salons strong and in 81 countries worldwide; every professional hairdresser knows the Paul Mitchell name. With the addition of more than 100 Paul Mitchell Schools, we’ve taken the world of cosmetology, esthetics, and barbering education by storm! Visit www.paulmitchell.edu to learn more.
