The Matthews, North Carolina, Empire Beauty School hosted their Celebrating Mom open house event in conjunction with the schools local competition for Empire Education Group’s Future Professionals Expo.
“It was an amazing event. There was so much creativity and talent that I was so thankful I did not have to be a judge,” smirked Angela Parkman, Academic Director for the Matthews Empire Beauty School.
Guests who arrived at the school for the open house were treated to the entertaining competition, as well as refreshments and free beauty services which were performed by the senior level students.
A representative from the school’s adopted shelter, The Shelter for Battered Women, was also in attendance to accept a check in the amount of $1,868.45 from the students and staff. The money was raised during the school’s participation in Empire Education Group’s National Day of Beauty event.
“The students were extremely excited during the check presentation. So much so that the representative from the shelter acknowledged that she has been to many check presentations, but this was by far the most energy she had seen exhibited at any of them,” said Parkman.
The shelter representative, Debbie Wolf, expressed the shelter’s gratitude for the support that the students and staff continue to give the shelter. The funds will help the shelter continue to assist women and children every day. Wolf then explained how the shelter protects and assists the residents of the facility, women and children, and how great it is to have the support from the Empire Beauty School.
