Students Exploring Career Options
On Friday student's from Mr. Krueger's transitional skills class had the opportunity to explore careers in cosmetology thanks to Holly Mindrum, School Board member and Owner of POSH hair salon in Aitkin. Holly took the time to educate students about the different academic methods available for obtaining a cosmetology license in Minnesota and the many career paths the license offers. Students learned about skin care techniques, disease management, nail care, hair treatments, and then got to experiment with methods in hair removal using sugar.
