(Rome, GA) – Students from Georgia Northwestern Technical College’s (GNTC) Cosmetology program on the Floyd County Campus hosted a special Valentine’s Spa Day for women from the Floyd Training Center and Highland Rivers Outreach that volunteer regularly for Angle Express, Inc.
The students provided free haircuts, hair styling, makeup services, and full service manicures and pedicures.
“Our students have shown a great passion for helping others and thrive on the experience of giving back,” said Anna Williams, instructor of Cosmetology at GNTC.
In addition to the services, clients also were provided with a special Valentine’s gift bags that were donated by volunteers from the Westminster Presbyterian Church.
“As the instructors of the Cosmetology program, we hope that giving back to our community will inspire the students to continue to volunteer their time and talents when they are licensed and working in a salon,” said Williams.
According to Susan Stephens, instructor of Cosmetology at GNTC, community service projects have become an ongoing part of GNTC’s Cosmetology program.
“Last year we hosted a Valentine’s Spa Day for residents of the Hospitality House for Women in Rome,” said Stephens. “Our students also volunteered their time and talent to the William S. Davies Homeless Shelter in Rome during Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday.”
Angel Express, Inc. is an independent, non-profit, all volunteer, tax-exempt corporation serving the communities in and around Rome, Ga.
