Minnesota School of Cosmetology (MSC) students volunteered to be hair and makeup artists for the Woodbury High School Annual Spring Cabaret. The solo performers in the cabaret had the luxury of having their hair professionally styled and their makeup precisely applied for this extraordinary event.
Daryl Timmer, Director of Choirs at Woodbury High School (WHS), stated, “Thanks again for coordinating the hair and makeup for our Cabaret show. The kids loved it. It was fun to watch the makeovers and catch up with [former WHS student and MSC graduate] Jolene Wenneson.”
Jolene Wenneson was the mastermind behind this Minnesota School of Cosmetology service learning project. She explained, “In high school, I was part of the cabaret show for three years and every year was an amazing experience. While attending college at MSC, I felt like it would be an amazing idea to showcase our cosmetology talent with the high school’s amazing performing talent. I got to see the show and I had goosebumps. It was great to see my high school teachers and it was a pleasure to be a part of the cabaret show once again.”
Partnering with local high schools in the community is extremely important to the staff and students who attend Minnesota School of Cosmetology.
