RVCC Cosmetology Student Selected to Attend National Program

Raritan Valley Community College cosmetology student Martina Romero of Branchburg has been selected to attend a prestigious program this summer that’s designed for the nation’s most promising cosmetology students.

Romero will participate in Beacon 2015, which provides cosmetology students with education and opportunities to network with the industry’s highest profile salon owners and stylists during the Professional Beauty Association (PBA) Beauty Week. The conference is held each July in Las Vegas. Beacon students attend specialized classes with the biggest names in the industry, meet with NAHA (North American Hairstylist Awards) finalists, and gain a firm understanding of the industry. Beacon students also attend specially designed breakout sessions that focus on interviewing for jobs, leadership skills, entrepreneurship and more.

Students apply for the Beacon program by submitting a professional resume, a marketing piece that represents their portfolio, and a letter of recommendation. This year over 900 students applied and 300 were selected.

RVCC’s next full-time Cosmetology program begins September 1. Financial aid and industry scholarships are available for those who qualify. For information about the program or upcoming information sessions, contact Marcia Bird, 908-526-1200, ext. 8618.
