ELLISVILLE- After a year in cosmetology classes at Jones County Junior College, 15 students have earned their career certificates and are ready to apply for their license and State Board testing. Cosmetology instructor, Sylvina Buckley and adjunct instructor, Marlette Lawrence are confident this group is ready for the next step.
“These students have worked very hard throughout the year,” said Buckley. “Long hours and standing all day can be a task in itself. They have turned out to be the professionals that we groomed them to be.”
