Class PT 17 overcome 17 months of working all day and attending school in the evening, a global pandemic, enforced distance learning, and a change of school location to Graduate with special honors for their commitment, versatility, and dedication. Now ready to join the industry, we can’t wait to see what they bring to the craft we love.
Graduation is the time for our students to show off their new skills to their fellow students, staff, family and friends. Each graduate presents a model that reflects their newfound technical and creative abilities as a stylist.
“It takes dedication and commitment to work a full time job and still come to school with the energy to complete school. Part Time 17 pushed through in these unique times. We learned together how to navigate zoom classes and then transferred back to in person classes at our flagship location. They handled it all with dignity. It is a group full of immense talent and compassion. I’m proud to have spent over a year as their educator and so excited to see the great energy and creativity they bring to the industry.” Joseph Guinto, Main Educator PT 17.
