Cosmetology Pathway Highlights
In March, Monte Vista High School held an Every 15 Minutes event. Sponsored by the California Highway Patrol, their website describes the program as, “…a two-day program focusing on high school juniors and seniors, which challenges them to think about drinking, driving, personal safety, the responsibility of making mature decisions and the impact their decisions have on family, friends, and many others.”
In support of the Every 15 Minutes program, students in the Monte Vista Cosmetology Pathway assisted in the presentation by doing the hair and make-up for the participants. The teacher, Angie Trujillo, and her students were eager to demonstrate the skills that they are learning in their pathway.
Currently, the Cosmetology pathway is offered at Mt Miguel and Chaparral, as well as Monte Vista. Mt Miguel’s “Studio 461” was recently renovated, and the Monte Vista Cosmetology lab will have the finishing touches on its upgrade completed this summer. The Cosmetology Pathway at Chaparral will move into their new facility when the new Career Technical Education (CTE) building is completed. Students in these CTE pathways are able to acquire skills which prepare them to enroll in a post-secondary training program, should they desire to pursue a career in this field.
