CLARKSDALE – Although they’re being trained to pamper others, Coahoma Community College Cosmetology students were on the receiving end of some special treatment Tuesday during a special Thanksgiving brunch and awards program.
Cosmetology Instructors Shirley Ferguson Hicks and Nancy Howard, along with Dean of Career and Technical Education Anne Clark, recognized several students in the program for retention, attendance and program completion during the event held at 11 a.m. in The Gallery.
“We thought you all were so great, so we decided to do something special for you guys and come together before the Thanksgiving break,” said Hicks before making the special presentations.
In addition to receiving certificates, the students also enjoyed a special luncheon and the opportunity to fellowship with one another before the close of the Fall 2014 semester.
According to Hicks, as set forth by Rule 5.22 of the Mississippi State Board of Cosmetology, students are now offering a wide-range of services to the public. These services include, but are not limited to, relaxers, color, sew-ins, spa manicures, facials and waxing. The program also retails maintenance products, including combs, brushes, and hair sprays.
During the program, two students were recognized for completing the program with 1500 clock hours—Tiffany Benson of Clarksdale, MS and Catherine Reed of Tunica, MS. Those honored for achieving the highest clock hours were Jamesica Evans of Friars Point, MS and Ethel Reynolds of Lambert, MS.
