School of Cosmetology Ribbon Cutting

Fort Scott, Kansas – The Fort Scott Community College School of Cosmetology will host an open house and ribbon cutting on August 22, 2014. The open house begins at 10:00 a.m. and the ribbon will be cut at 10:30 a.m.

The School of Cosmetology was located in downtown Fort Scott for the past 25+ years. The School of Cosmetology is now located on the main campus in the former industrial arts building on the south side of campus. Their new number is (620) 223-2700 x.5220.

Dr. Blake Flanders, Vice-President of Workforce Development for the Kansas Board of Regents, will be on hand to assist with the ribbon cutting. Flanders provides leadership for the statewide Career Technical Education Initiative (also known as Senate Bill 155), including curriculum and program evaluation, advocating for system funding, testifying at the state and federal level, and most recently attending a White House summit to address how to help more low-income students reach college and succeed once they get there.

The Career Technical Education Initiative funding was a primary source of revenue for the School of Cosmetology relocation and the current building’s remodeling. Under the Career Technical Education Initiative Kansas high school students can qualify for free college tuition in approved technical courses offered at Kansas technical and community colleges.

Fort Scott Community College currently offers Career Technical Education Initiative eligible courses in Construction Trades, Cosmetology, Health Careers, Manicuring and Welding. Interested students should contact their high school counselor or FSCC at 1-800-874-3722.
