Senior Cosmetology Students Pass State Board Exams


<< Back to CCPS News

Six Caroline Career & Technology (CCTC) students recently passed their State Board exams and will graduate high school as licensed cosmetologists. They are Phylicia Galvin, Jillian Gleaton, Jodie Griep, Daniela Ledezma, Keit Ortiz-Ayala, and Briza Ramirez. Kiara Berry, a student from Easton High School attending CCTC, also passed her exams.

The cosmetology program of study at CCTC focuses on theory and practical skill applications in the areas of hair, nail and esthetic care, chemistry, anatomy and physiology, business, communication and state laws, rules and regulations. Once students have completed the course and the required number of hours mandated by the Maryland State Board of Cosmetology, they are eligible to take both a written and practical examination to become licensed cosmetologists. While enrolled in the program, students have the opportunity to travel to hair shows, attend educational classes from outside vendors, conduct mock interviews, and work with stylists in the industry to learn about the latest trends.

“I am so proud of these students and their teachers Ms. Wright and Ms. Hall,” CCTC Principal Gene Smith said. “Cosmetology is not an easy course of study, and the fact these students are departing high school with marketable skills and professional career licenses is extraordinary.”

Students interested in learning more about the CCTC Cosmetology Program should contact their home school’s guidance counselor for more information.
