New careers around the corner

Three goal-oriented women, Reva Rolden (Sandusky), Heather Brandenburg (New London) and Joanna Dominguez (Norwalk), are on their way to new careers after passing the State of Ohio’s cosmetology  licensing exam after completing the cosmetology program at EHOVE Adult Career Center. 

“It felt great, like I accomplished something for myself, my future and my journey,” said Cosmetology graduate Joanna Dominguez (Norwalk).  

Dominguez plans to be a salon business owner in the near future.  “EHOVE’s teaching techniques and getting a different perspective from different cosmetology instructors at EHOVE was very beneficial for my learning experience, which helped me to succeed,” she said. 

“Very overwhelming, yet very excited . . . felt very accomplished,” says Cosmetology graduate Reva Roldan (Sandusky) after passing her licensing exam.  “I always knew I would do hair as a profession.  I love hair and beauty.”  Roldan has already received two job offers. 

"The graduation of this class continues our 100% pass rate at the Ohio State Board of Cosmetology," said Adult Education Cosmetology Coordinator Gena Vanover.  "We are proud of all of our students that graduate from the EHOVE adult program. Many of our alumni stay in touch with us on a regular basis. They can get help with jobs or general job seeking skills.  We help them in any way possible with their success in this field."

Enrollment is open now for the next Cosmetology program at EHOVE Adult Career Center.  If you or someone you know is interested in attending, please go to the program's web page or call 419-499-4663 x280 for more information.
