The Temple Honored By Modern Salon Media for Excellence In Education!

The Temple Modern Salon Excellence in Education

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.”

The Risers Honored For Business Influence On Community

The Temple Do Gooder Award

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.”

Temple Do Gooder Award Group

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.
