TSPA Holland: Dedicated to our Community

On November 5th 2017, The Salon Professional Academy(TSPA), Holland was awarded the Community Service of the Year Award at the annual SPEC conference. This award, given to one school who has shown an intense commitment to supporting their community, is a huge honor and one that we are proud to receive.

The Salon Professional Education Company, or SPEC, is the parent company to The Salon Professional Academy family of schools. Each year we gather together for trainings and announcements that impact our schools, and help us to deliver a quality education to every one of our students.

TSPA Holland Community Service award

A Dedication to Community

Since we opened our doors in September of 2016 our focus has always been on supporting our community and teaching our students the benefit of giving back. In addition to our own yearly work with our own charity; Share Your Heart for the Holiday’s, we have also donated time and services to many other charities local to Holland, Michigan.

This charity, which promotes self-esteem in young girls through physical fitness, holds and annual 5k. Used to both support the charity and the girls involved with the program, this 5k depends on vendors to help create an atmosphere of fun.

This last year TSPA Holland donated their time at the Happy Hair Station, where race participants could get their hair jazzed out with color and glitter!

Be Nice

In a fundraiser celebrating their grand opening, the owners at TSPA Holland chose to work with Be Nice, a non-profit focused on suicide prevention. They provided donation cans as well as training for their students to help them recognize the warning signs of depression and suicidal thoughts in their clients and co-workers.

Kids Food Basket

Decorated lunch bags

Thousands of children in Michigan live in food insecure houses, meaning that they often don’t know where their next meal is going to come from. The students at The Salon Professional Academy, Holland work with local charity, Kids Food Basket daily to to help provide them with snacks and meals for their weekends outside of school. They do this not only by providing food, but by decorating the bags the kids are sent home with with positive messages of encouragement.

It truly is a rewarding experience to know you are making a difference in the lives of those in your community.

It is from all of this amazing work we do with our community that has led to our recognition of this award. We are honored by the recognition and proud to know we have set a precedence towards service that influences our students as well as other schools in the TSPA network.

We hope that we can pass on the torch of service to other beauty schools around the country, encouraging them to give back to those who have given so much to them.
