Eastern Suffolk BOCES Adult Education Cosmetology students from Dorothea LoBiondo’s class offered hair and make-up services to the Bellport Middle School students during the production of “The Little Mermaid, Jr.” As a component of their education, the Adult Education students are required to perform community service.
Students Susan Spellman, Jeanne Moir, Nicole Castro, Mariella Pugliese, and Taylor Marangoni who attend the Adult Education Cosmetology program at the H.B. Ward Career and Technical Center (WCTC) in Riverhead, coiffured and applied make-up to cast members at four performances of “The Little Mermaid, Jr.” from January 30 through February 2, 2013.
Dorothea LoBiondo said, “This was a worthwhile collaborative effort and community service opportunity for the Adult Ed students to work with school-aged clients.”
Bellport Middle School music teacher Alice McAleese said, “We were very appreciative for the cosmetology students’ efforts. It was a good experience for everyone.”
