January 18, 2018 -- There’s a quote that says “it’s never too late!” Many former students at the Lorain County JVS Adult Career Center couldn’t agree more. With winter/spring enrollment taking place right now, JVS Adult Career Center staff are hoping residents who are looking for a new opportunity or wanting to enhance or reboot their careers, will enroll in classes now. JVS Adult Career Center Director, Kristian Smith said that alumni feature stories were added to the current winter/spring catalog to highlight their accomplishments. “We wanted to show a human interest side of the adult education program and share how we have impacted lives and helped the community.” Michelle Lopez graduated from the JVS Cosmetology program in 2016. She began working at Spa West in Westlake, Ohio as soon as she received her license. Lopez was a full-time barber in the business for 30 years. Upon enrolling at JVS, Lopez was able to use 600 credit hours from her barber experience. “It was tough, but it was worth it,” shared Lopez. “It took a lot of discipline and took a lot of encouragement from the teachers, but it was so worth it. I was able to learn everything from skin to massage to nails to different techniques.” Cosmetology courses begin January 22. Students will learn the art and science of beautifying hair, skin, and nails in a state-of-the-art, working salon setting. Instructors oversee hands-on training and provide guidance as the students gain the necessary skills to become professional cosmetologists. Lopez said the Cosmetology program at JVS certainly enhanced her career. “There’s a whole world of cosmetology out there,” said Lopez. “There’s more to it, than just hair and nails. You can do it all.”
