Spreading the word with Chad Alexander. KOKC "Chad Alexander Show"
We are so humbled and honored to be the recipient of many awards in our first year: VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR, PROGRAMS MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN OKLAHOMA, STATE SALES TAX EXEMPTION, DAUGHTERS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION: EXCELLENCE IN COMMUNITY SERVICE, and CITATION OF RECOGNITION FROM OKLAHOMA HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
We are thrilled to partner with Central Oklahoma College in offering a new R.I.S.E.PROGRAM scholarship which will allow 6 women per year (recently released from Oklahoma Department of Corrections) the opportunity to attend Cosmetology school at Central State. Shonda was our inspiration for establishing this scholarship and met all of the eligibility requirements. She is now enrolled and begins her studies in May 2016. It is truly beautiful to see women walk out of prison and into their dreams.
Shonda had her first client tonight at school. Beautiful Braids!
We had a great turn out for our Grand Opening, thank you Senators and State Representatives.
Our first graduates!!! Congratulations Vernita, Amanda and Bridgette.
