June Career Fair

TSPA Appleton Career Fair was a  huge success!career-fair-620x300

On June 13th, The Salon Professional Academy-Appleton hosted a career fair at their campus. It was an amazing turnout, with 18 salons and spas in attendance. Our Academy wants to help students become wonderful cosmetologists and estheticians, but we go even farther than honing our students’ skills. We provide opportunities for students to meet salon and spa owners and managers before graduation, so when they are ready to apply for jobs, they already have a career network. If you would like more information about our programs, click here.

Check out the salons and spas that joined us at our Career Fair. Thank you all so much for being a part of this and making it such a great success!

TRIM HUNGER is dedicated to wiping out hunger in America and won’t stop until every food bank and pantry, every public school lunch program, and every community outreach effort has enough food to go around. The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA) of Appleton WI and nationwide have organized fundraising efforts to bring awareness to the issue of feeding the hungry in America.

TRIM HUNGER, a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization, is dedicated to raising awareness and donations to address the issue of hunger in America. Through its affiliation with the nationwidebeauty school franchise The Salon Professional Academy and with the help of generouscorporate sponsors, TRIM HUNGER is igniting the passion to help those in need in the hearts ofbeauty professionals all across the country. “In an industry already focused on helping, giving, and transforming lives, TRIM HUNGER will have the limitless support of beauty schools, salons, spas, and manufacturers to provide nutritious meals for those greatest in need,” stated Josif Wittnik, the founder of TRIM HUNGER.

In 2014, Wittnik of Appleton, Wi., was introduced to frightening and saddening statistics regarding the number of people in his own community, including many children, who were goingwithout food each day. Motivated by this daily tragedy in his hometown, Josif, the co-owner of The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA) and Salon CTI, leveraged their reach and the caring hearts of the other salon owners, staff, and students to sponsor fundraisers. By the end of 2014, thousands of dollars were raised to help the local food bank provide meals to the community. Knowing that more needed to be done, both locally and across the United States, Josif brought this issue to the attention of executives with REDKEN 5th Avenue NYC and L’Oreal USA in January 2015. Since then, TRIM HUNGER continues to receive an outpouring of support from The Salon Professional Academy franchise and corporate sponsors including REDKEN, ESSIEAdidas, WOW Logistics, and Keller – planners, architects, builders.

Events will take place year round, culminating in a month-long effort in September (National Hunger Action Month) to raise funds and awareness for the hunger problem facing our country. On September 27th, TRIM HUNGER hopes to break the Guinness Book of World Records’ existing record for the most people cutting hair at the same time when 20 TRIM HUNGER Cut-A-Thons will be held simultaneously at The Salon Professional Academies (TSPAs) across the nation.The TSPA of Appleton, WI will be participating in the September 27th TRIM HUNGER Cut-a-Thon at their location, 3355 W. College Ave. from the hours of 10:00am-4:00pm. For additional details contact: 920-968-0433.

Essie, a corporate sponsor, will be offering their “Roarrrrange” nail shade as a symbol of supporting the fight against hunger. A dedicated grass-roots campaign through social media will be employed through the use of [hashtag] #orangethumbie. As part of a growing trend of painting thumbnails the official color of the cause they support, TRIM HUNGER participants will be invited to share a “selfie” on social media with their “orange thumbie.

For information on the future TRIM HUNGER outreach in local communities, please contact Josif Wittnik, TRIM HUNGER Founder, josif@trimhunger.com  or 920-450-0784.
