Cosmetology Students Pinned during Ceremony at OFTC

Graduating cosmetology students at Oconee Fall Line Technical College (OFTC) participated in a pinning ceremony signifying the completion of their educational requirements and required salon hours on Monday, December 4 at the college’s South Campus in Dublin.

“We have been doing the pinning since the first graduating cosmetology class in 2009,” shared Lisa Jones, Cosmetology Instructor at OFTC. “Students really enjoy this special event because it is an accomplishment to complete the 1500 hours they’re required to have for their state boards.”

During the ceremony students were pinned with a pair of shears and received a certificate signifying the completion of their 1500 hours, which is the last step before taking their state boards and graduation.

Participating students were: Montana Hullender, Dublin; Asher Laughlin, Dublin; Destiny Foster, Cochran; Erika Harris, Cochran; Stacy Lowery, Cadwell; Dahlaney Day, Baldwin; Emerald Cruz, Eastman, and Asia Edmond (Dublin).
