Bellus Academy Receives California Association of Private Post-Secondary Schools “Gold” Excellence in Community Service Award

Bellus Academy Receives California Association of Private Post-Secondary Schools “Gold” Excellence in Community Service Award

(April 4, 2017 – Sacramento, CA)— Bellus Academy was honored with the “Gold” award for Excellence in Community Service by the California Association of Private Post-Secondary Schools (CAPPS) during an awards ceremony on Tuesday, March 28 in the state capital. The award represents the highest level of community service recognition among private post-secondary colleges in California. Community service is an integral component of the Bellus Academy culture at all of its California campuses including Poway, El Cajon and National City.

Throughout 2016, Bellus Academy students and staff participated in 27 different community service initiatives, primarily in the San Diego County area. A few of Bellus Academy’s humanitarian efforts in 2016 included:

Providing free haircuts and grooming services to individuals experiencing homelessness

Offering backstage hair and makeup for fundraisers benefitting victims of domestic violence

Contributing time and talent to events that boost self-esteem for at-risk youth

Pampering cancer patients with complimentary manicures

Partnering with local first responders to raise money for children’s cancer charities

Offering grooming services to assist incarcerated individuals as they transition into society

Providing complimentary makeup and hair at military events

Offering therapeutic stretching services for surfers raising funds to support at-risk young men

Offering the gift of a meal and grooming to homeless individuals seeking employment

CAPPS developed the Excellence in Community Service Award to recognize and encourage initiatives in community service, service learning, and civic engagement that have a significant impact on the communities served by member schools. “Bellus Academy prepares students for careers that are all about helping people feel better,” said Lynelle Lynch, owner of Bellus Academy. “Giving back by supporting community causes throughout the year lets students experience how beauty and wellness professionals improve an individual’s external appearance, and often help restore their confidence and dignity as well.”

Andy Seaboch, community relations coordinator at Bellus Academy, accepted the award.
