Shriners Hospital for Children® Twin Cities hosted a very special prom for their young patients, and Minnesota School of Cosmetology (MSC) – Woodbury students were privileged to volunteer as the hairstylists, nail technicians and makeup artists. Forty-four young people had their hair, makeup and nails done by our students at this remarkable event, held at the Minnesota Masonic Home in Bloomington, Minnesota.
Shriners Hospital for Children® – Twin Cities focuses on treating children with orthopaedic and neuromusculoskeletal conditions in a kid-friendly environment designed to help make them feel comfortable. Every member of the Shriners staff is focused on providing the highest quality care for the child and the family.
This was the 6th Annual Shriner’s Prom and MSC has been volunteering for the event since the beginning. Maureen Johnston, Child Life Director for Shriners Hospital exclaimed, “Your group was amazing (again) at Prom! We really could not do this event without generous people like you!”
MSC student, Amy Henry, was touched by her involvement with the Shriners prom. “I am so happy to have been a part of the Shriners prom. To be able to see the joy and excitement on all the girls faces while being a part of their special day, and in the meantime, I was doing something that I love and am so passionate about! It just really doesn’t get any better than that!”
Students and staff at the Minnesota School of Cosmetology always look forward to enhancing the prom experience for special young people at this annual event.
