Farouk Systems Embarks on Capitol Hill

On April 12, Lisa Marie Garcia, President of Innovations, Dixie Sabedra, CHI Schools Director and Jill Lewis, Fields, Sales CHI Schools Manager joined the AACS (American Association of Cosmetology Schools) to meet with legislators from the House of Representatives and Senate to urge their support for the PROSPER Act. This coordinated effort brought awareness and support for H. R. 4508—Promoting Real Opportunity, Success, and Prosperity through Education Reform (PROSPER) Act, a bill that supports Cosmetology School government funding for student loans.

Farouk Systems, supports the AACS and the PROSPER Act in an effort to ensure the future of cosmetology schools, funding and education to reach a higher level of professionalism. This can be accomplished by helping students better understand the importance of paying back their loans, completing their education, maintaining cosmetology licensing and school funding.

According to Lisa Marie Garcia, “As a company of hairdressers for hairdressers, we understand this industry and the importance of schools having the resources and the funding to operate at full capacity. This gives students every opportunity to be successful while opening the doors to the many career paths they can capitalize on, allowing graduates the means to pay off their loans.”
