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.”
We’re thrilled to announce that Charles and Sharon Riser, owners of The Temple: A Paul Mitchell Partner School were recognized at the 2017 DoGood-er Awards as the year’s Business DoGood-ers.
The event seeks to recognize businesses, individuals or advocates who serve their communities and the people in it, by giving back in small to big ways. The event honored 14 DoGood-ers from the Frederick Community that were nominated and vetted by members of their community for their service.
“We are truly humbled and honored to have this distinction bestowed upon us,” said Sharon Riser, co-owner. “We’ve always believed in giving back to the community we live in and the staff and Future Professionals at The Temple are huge advocates of this as well. We are thrilled to be recognized in such good company.”
Caressa Flannery, founder of the event states, “Studies show that doing good and giving back in your community puts the focus on others and helps foster positive mental health. The DoGood-er Awards seek to recognize those in our community who selflessly give back to others individually, or through charitable organizations.”
Proceeds from the DoGood-er Awards event also helped support two local non-profit organizations – Blessings in a Backpack, an organization that helps fight childhood hunger on the weekends and the Up & Out Foundation, a group that assists in supporting those in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction with resources and assistance through their journey.
We, at The Temple: A Paul Mitchell Partner School, were truly honored to recently be able to give back to the caregivers of some of this country’s biggest heroes. With loved ones at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, these ladies deserved a little bit of pampering!
The Temple: A Paul Mitchell Partner School is once again excited to be a part of Flowers over Frederick in Downtown Frederick, MD. Flowers over Frederick aims to beautify the downtown Frederick community.
“Our school and Future Professionals are always looking for ways to support our community. Being a cosmetology school, we show and teach our Future Professionals how to create beauty. Flowers Over Frederick allows us, not only, to create beauty outside of our doors, but also, give back to the community that we love.” said Sharon Riser, co -owner.
The Temple has provided so many opportunities for me, like photo shoots, fashion shows, and hair shows! I had the chance to attend Caper 2013 and even helped out at the Fashion Focus Hair Show in Baltimore. And the connections I made while in school were second to none. If you’re willing to learn and give, you’re going to get back. And I personally have gotten so much! I can’t wait to see what else is in store for the rest of my time here.
