Herkimer BOCES Cosmetology program seniors Mackenzie Ritton, of Central Valley, and Olyvia Manella, of Frankfort-Schuyler, presented to the Herkimer BOCES Board of Education on Thursday, Oct 14, about the history of cosmetology. They did such a great job that Herkimer BOCES District Superintendent Sandra Sherwood invited component district superintendents during the cabinet meeting on Friday, Oct. 15, to attend an extended version of the presentation. The students did an excellent job, and the cabinet members asked questions about what the students were learning and about the artifacts that were displayed. Central Valley Superintendent Jeremy Rich expressed that he was pleasantly surprised that identifying signs of abuse is a mandated part of their training and that they have brochures about community supports they can share with interested clients.
