Southern Careers Institute to Honor Gold Star Spouses with a Day of Pampering at Southern Star Salon

Nominations for Gold Star Spouses can be Submitted via the Salon’s Facebook Page

Gold Star Spouses Day is Monday, April 5. To honor spouses who have lost their loved one in the line of duty, and the sacrifices their families have made for our country, Southern Careers Institute (SCI), through its SCI Cares program, will provide a day of pampering and mini-makeovers to three Gold Star spouses. The makeovers will take place on Saturday, April 3, and the public is invited to nominate a deserving Gold Star spouse to receive the services at one of our three Southern Star Salon locations.

“Hosting Gold Star Appreciation Day at our salon is a way to support families affected by war and to raise awareness about the network of resources available to those who have lost loved ones in the line of duty,” said Tammy Newsom, project director of SCI’s Southern Star Salon. “SCI Cares wants to express our appreciation for those who have lost so much but whose support and service to our country are sometimes overlooked.”

To nominate a Gold Star spouse for the makeover – which will include a haircut, color, manicure, and pedicure – send a message through the salon’s Facebook Page (links above), with their story and your contact information by Wednesday, March 31 at noon. Participants will be selected at random and announced on Thursday, April 1.

What SCI Students Are Saying

“I made a complete career change when I started my training at Southern Careers Institute. I needed a stable career to continue providing for my growing family. SCI provided me with the medical terminology and know how that I needed to understand and acquire a career in the medical field. SCI taught me that it doesn’t matter where you are in life right now; you always have room to advance and learn.”


Denise S.
Medical Assistant

“I am extremely grateful for the assistance I received from SCI’s Career Services team. I enjoy where I work and what I do. SCI has helped me succeed in life by getting me the necessary education and by making me a stronger and more confident person.”


Raquel S.

“Once I graduated from SCI, I had a sense of accomplishment that helped me through the job search process. SCI provided me with the opportunity to brush up on my skills, extend my accounting knowledge, and they boosted my self-confidence. I went to work two days after my last day of school.”


Annette D.
Business Accounting

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”


Bonnie M
Medical Assistant

“I am now a certified Lab Tech. SCI helped me get an externship, and I came out with a job. After my little sister had cancer, I knew I wanted a career in the medical field that allowed me to help others. I am happy about what I do.”


Sidney B
Medical Assistant

“The best place ever!! Ms.Tonia rocks she is the best teacher… I love going to school my time there is amazing.”


Andrea Garcia

“Southern Careers went beyond my expectations. Very impressed. The assistance I got from Career Services is truly amazing. They really went out of their way to get me placed. They really care and I am grateful to all of them.”


Olga C.

“Southern Careers Institute totally surpassed my expectations. Once I finished school, the Career Services team helped me find a job. I would tell anyone thinking about starting career training that you have nothing to lose and a lot to gain. I wish I would have started my training sooner.”


Valerie D.

“I am very happy with where I am and where I’m going. Through high school, I struggled with math. When I came to SCI, I enrolled in the Business Accounting Specialist program to see if I could do it. SCI provided me with the accounting skills I needed to help me find a career. Now, I have an amazing career and room to grow in the company.”
