MODERN SALON Media has named the 2017-18 class of “Excellence in Education” honorees in its seventh annual program recognizing leadership and best practices among cosmetology schools. The Temple: A Paul Mitchell Partner School of Frederick, Maryland, was chosen to represent excellence in the following categories: Community Involvement and Marketing.
Honorees were determined based on key criteria in each category and grouped according to number of locations. Honorees were chosen in each category—one individual school location, and a multi-location school organization.
“We received applications from cosmetology schools across the country and look forward to celebrating all the 2017-18 Excellence in Education honorees and sharing their stories. It is truly a great time to pursue a beauty education and career, and the program at The Temple: A Paul Mitchell Partner School exemplifies that fact,” MODERN SALON Editorial Director Michele Musgrove says.
“We are truly honored to receive this Excellence in Education distinction from MODERN SALON Magazine,” said Charles Riser, co-owner of The Temple: A Paul Mitchell Partner School. “We strive to create opportunities for our staff and Future Professionals to give back to the community as well as improve the overall quality of their education.”
Sharing stories of innovation, inspiration and collaboration from a diverse group of leading schools is an important part of MODERN SALON’s “Excellence in Education” mission, Musgrove explains. “We want to help spread the word about the exceptional work cosmetology schools are doing to help launch beautiful careers. We hope the professional salon industry and their communities will join us in celebrating them.”

For the 4th year in a row, the Temple: A Paul Mitchell Partner School was thrilled to be a part of the annual Daddy Daughter Dance this past February at the Frederick Fairgrounds hosted by City of Frederick Parks & Rec Department.
Nearly 800 father/daughter couples attended the sold-out soiree where Temple Future Professionals provided nail services along with goody bags with Paul Mitchell samples and complimentary follow up discount cards.
The City of Frederick generously donates $350 to The Temple’s annual Paul Mitchell School FUNraising efforts that benefits 11 different non-profit organizations on a local and national level.
“This event was amazing for both me as a staff member as well as the Future Professionals that participated. Tons of fun for everyone! They were all outstanding and really made a difference for attendees. We always love making them smile!” said Liz Rapalus, Learning Leader.
Future Professionals taking part in our student run programs had the recent privilege of practicing their craft on visitors at the Alan P. Linton Jr. Emergency Shelter in Frederick, Maryland. Numerous haircuts were performed on the area’s homeless individuals during the team’s visit.
“We are incredibly proud of our Future Professionals tonight under the leadership of Learning Leaders Mandy Ward and Danielle West for giving back to those in need, said Sharon Riser Co-CEO. “We are so proud of how our Future Professionals conducted themselves and their focus and dedication.”
I love everything about Paul Mitchell from the culture, education, to mentors and most of all products and tools. I’m extremely thankful and happy for all the amazing and talented people I met at The Temple.
