San Antonio, TX – Southern Careers Institute’s Southern Star Salon and SCI Cares will be organizing and distributing 100 Thanksgiving food care boxes, providing meals to local families supported by The Lemonade Circle on November 22.

Lemonade Circle is a local non-profit dedicated to empowering young girls and teens in grades 5th through 12th with opportunities to explore and engage with the community with a heavy focus on leadership development and civic engagement. This year, SCI ‘s cosmetology students and instructors at Southern Star Salon not only donated the contents of all 100 boxes to give to Lemonade Circle’s families, but will be using their San Antonio location as a distribution center on November 22 at 6 p.m.

“SCI students and instructors from Southern Star Salon are always looking for a way to give back to our local community,” said Katasha Prince, Corporate Cosmetology Program Director at Southern Careers Institute. “When we learned about The Lemonade Circle and how these young women leaders are dedicated to improving the world we live in, we wanted to make sure their Thanksgiving was special and one to be remembered.”

“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.”

“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.”
