NMJC's LCCF Students Create Mannequins for Show
3/20/2007 10:36:34 a.m. - Hobbs, NM. New Mexico Junior College Cosmetology Department's Hot Nights, City Lights hair show, held Saturday, March 17, highlighted not only work of the students on campus, but work from the students at the Lea County Correctional Facility as well.
Glitz and glamour defined the show; however, the stage had a new lining this year. With mannequins created by student inmates at the LCCF who are enrolled in NMJC's Barber Program, the lining of the stage was adorned with mannequins that were fixed not with an average hairstyle, but with elaborate creations of angels, dolphins, peacocks, and such. And for NMJC Cosmetology/Barber Professors Miesha Jackson and Maria Vick, they may call this stage lining a silver lining.
"It's so uplifting to see the work of these gentlemen. For whatever reason they are in the facility, they've decided to make a good outcome for themselves," explains Vick. "I had a student from NMJC's first LCCF Barber Class (who has graduated from the program and is now out of the facility) contact us, and he now has a barbering job, making positive use of all the lessons he learned."
