Cosmetology program students bring home top awards

MERIDIAN —    MCC students Shelia Wiley of Meridian and Abby Conn of Philadelphia brought back trophies from the recent Mississippi Cosmetology Association’s 67th Annual Student Competition held in Philadelphia.

    Conn won first place in nail art and Wiley won first in fantasy hair extensions and a third place in business day hair extension. She also garnered a trophy for the most accumulated points in that division. Both Wiley and Conn are first year cosmetology program students.

    Tanya Wright, program coordinator, was pleased with the students’ efforts.

    “The competition shows what they learn and it’s a way to express their creativity,” Wright said.

    Other MCC cosmetology students vying in the competition were Sabrina Terrell and Jennifer May, both of Meridian. Student models participating included Katie Jenkins and Alona Doolittle, both of Meridian, and Chelsea Sinclair of Enterprise.

    MCC’s cosmetology program is a 12-month course of study designed to prepare students to care for the hair, complexion, hands and feet.
