"Bus Driver, Move That Bus!"by Paul Mitchell Schools on 12/3/2007
When Ty Pennington, host of ABC TV's popular Extreme Makeover Home Edition, yelled them through his ever-present megaphone in Manchester, New Hampshire, the staff and Future Professionals of Michael's School of Hair Design and Esthetics – A Paul Mitchell Partner School were on hand to help make a dream come true.
People from this small community accepted the challenge to build a new home for the Voisine family, whose home had been destroyed in the 2006 floods. Hundreds of volunteers stepped forward, including Paul Mitchell Future Professionals and staff. Erika Cormier, esthetician and Learning Leader Advisor, worked as the makeup artist for the interview segments of the show. Student Council members presented the family with a gift basket of Paul Mitchell products, "Courage" T-shirts, a day of beauty for spa and salon services for Mrs. Voisine, and a year of free haircuts for her husband and four sons.
School Dean Gail Hoage said, "That day we became part of a miracle supporting a mission: When people come first, success will follow. To be a small helping part of Extreme Makeover Home Edition's family miracle rescue project for the Voisine family confirms our success of embracing our school's culture and the Paul Mitchell Beauty Schools vision." The show is expected to air in January 2008.
