Tameara Willis Student Success 2011
Cosmetology Student Angie Gomez has become a National Champion!
It was announced on Tuesday, May 18, 2010 that cosmetology student Angelica Gomez won the 2010 Junior Styles Star nationwide hair style competition, and is receiving $56,000 in cash and prizes for her victory. Junior Style Stars Vice President Paul Barry along with world famous hairstylist and salon owner Allen Edwards, surprised Angie with the announcement in room A-202 while in class. Angie is joining famous stylists throughout the country to learn techniques including all-expense paid trips to Orlando, New York and North Carolina. Angie has made history by becoming the first community college student to win this award! She is a proud GAIN/CalWORKS student, a single mother of three and a very humble young lady who wants to finish her degree at Cal-State Los Angeles and maybe come back and teach at Trade Tech. Her mentor and cosmetology chair Marilyn Maine is receiving an all-expense paid trip to Orlando for the cosmetology instructors conference. Angie is a tremendous example of the hope and talent we have all over this campus. We congratulate Angie on her phenomenal and historic achievement, and we wish her well.
