Cosmetology Students Receive Media Attention for Giving Back
April 26, 2018 – “We love being a part of getting the whole package put together, a smile on their face and pictures that they will have for a lifetime,” said Blake Dula, WPCC cosmetology coordinator during a recent interview with WCNC reporter, Rachel Lundberg. Here’s the rest of the story…
MORGANTON, N.C. — If you’ve got a high schooler…you know prom season is here!
Getting all done up for prom can be expensive. Western Piedmont Community College’s cosmetology students are giving their services to students throughout Morganton.
On Thursday, every student at North Carolina’s School for the Deaf (NCSD) had the opportunity to feel special for free. Throughout the month of May, through this project prom partnership, dozens of other students will enjoy the same experience.
Take a moment and experience what life is like for the deaf. Experiences we often have, they don’t. Ones we do, we don’t even have to think about. But for someone who is deaf, every opportunity brings it’s own obstacles, like getting a makeover for prom!
So the student’s at WPCC wanted each student to have the opportunity to feel special. Most are getting their very first makeover!
Claudia is a student at NCSD. This prom she has a date, so looking good is very important to her! “They do a good job here,” Claudia told NBC Charlotte.
“These girls don’t get to go into a salon and get their hair done often, and today’s their really special day,” Blake Dula, the cosmetology coordinator said. “For us, as we get older, it’s our wedding day, but for them, it’s prom. We love being a part of getting the whole package put together, a smile on their face and pictures that they will have for a lifetime.”
