Student Advisory Council is a key component to the functioning of The Salon Professional Academy, bringing together student leaders and staff.
The philosophy of Student Advisory Council is “SAC is an organization of students who hold the common interest of serving as the driving forces in upholding and increasing school spirit, helping their fellow students voice concerns and ideas, and allowing members a chance to develop and use leadership skills in both the school and community.”
It is the fact that students engage each other in these skill-sets that establish the fundamental groundwork that is SAC.
There are staff members that are involved; however, they take minor roles. One student from each class (January Cosmo, March Cosmo, May Cosmo, July Cosmo, September Cosmo, November Cosmo, Esthetics, Massage Therapy, Nail Tech) is elected by their peers.
The key role of each elected member is to take responsibility for voicing their constituents (fellow students) concerns and ideas, as well as informing them about current endeavors within the school.
Student Advisory Council also teaches various lessons in time management, leadership and efficiency.
As a whole, Student Advisory Council helps all of the school system by bringing concerns and ideas to a neutral party, in order to affect positive change. It also helps to build leadership skills and shape members into more mature and confident adults.
