Gold and Silver Medals for SLC!

2013-05-09

 For the fifth year in a row, St. Lawrence College Esthetician students brought home medals from the Ontario Skills Competition held in Kitchener/Waterloo on May 6 and 7. The winning students are Julia Foell, who won the gold medal, and Amanda Oliveira who won silver.  Students were competing against colleges from across the province in advanced facial, manicure with nail art, pedicure, bridal and fantasy make up.


Julia will compete in the National Skills Competition, to be held in Vancouver, June 6-7.  " St. Lawrence College's Esthetician program is truly one of the best programs offered," said Julia. "We were so well prepared, not only for this competition, but for our future careers."

 

"I’m so excited to take the knowledge and skills I’ve acquired at SLC into my career. The skills competition was the icing on the cake of a fantastic year, learning and training to be able to do what I love,” said Amanda.
