MANLEY-BLACKMAN SPIRIT AWARD
Pivot Point International, Inc. has created the Manley-Blackman Spirit Award to honor a school owner, faculty member
or staff person who displays the "spirit" of Bonnie Manley and Ron Blackman. Bonnie and Ron were Member School
owners who recently passed away.
Bonnie Manley, owner of Je Boutique, Poway and Bay Vista Academies in the San Diego, CA, area, was passionate about
the welfare of children. Whether it was her own grandchildren or a missing child hundreds of miles away, she inspired
her students to raise more than $40,000 for the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC).
Ron Blackman, owner of Masters of Cosmetology in Fort Wayne, IN, refused to allow a disaster to stop his commitment
to the National Center. Despite severe flood damage to his school, he continued to raise money for the NCMEC.
