The Fort Scott Cosmetology School participated in a community service project this past Saturday.
In conjunction with the FSMS VIPs, the parent group at Fort Scott Middle School, eight student stylists donated their afternoon to style the hair of middle school students. This was the fifth year of the event, scheduled to coincide with the annual TWIRP dance.
This event benefits both the middle schoolers and the cosmetology students, as the middle schoolers get “dolled up” before the big dance and the college students get to practice creating different hairstyles.
“We are so appreciative of the cosmetology school for continuing to volunteer their time each year,” said FSMS VIP President Stephanie George. “We had twenty-two students sign up for the event this year. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and they all looked fantastic! We look forward to this project every year.”
The cosmetology school is located on the college campus in Fort Scott. They are looking into expanding their hours so that they can take appointments in the evenings and Saturdays.To make an appointment, call 620-223-2700.
