“We are game changers. We are innovators” – Rebecca Johnson,Winnipeg Fashion graduate, Fall 2015
Saying ‘bye Felicia’ 👋👋 to a closet full of black clothing, people who ask you “so you’re going to be on project runway?”, and creepy looking practice fingers can only mean one thing: you’re finally done school!
In November, over 200 Hairstyling, Esthetics and Fashion Design graduates across our 6 campuses celebrated their success with their families, friends, classmates, industry partners and MC College staff. 🙌
From “improvising last minute embellishments on garments when things don’t go as planned” (Rebecca Johnson) to soliciting friends and family to be models for exams and doing perm wraps for hours on end, graduates spent the last 7-12 months working through their blood, sweat and tears (figuratively of course!!) towards the career they’ve always been dreaming about. “As with most worthy things in life, it is never an easy journey to success and the program at MC College is no exception…obsessively saving our progress after every little edit to…regularly running on less hours of sleep than I can count” says Winnipeg Fashion Graduate Rebecca Johnson. “The first day of classes quite possibly have been one of the most monumental days of our lives… we found friends that can only be described as life long…not only did we make friends, we made family” adds Angie McGill.
Awards such as Academic Achievement, Valedictorian and the Frank Cairo Awards were handed out. In addition, funny awards such as biggest hair, three musketeers and ‘person who always slept in class’ award were also handed out.
At every graduation, Spring and Fall, the Frank Cairo Award is given to students who best represents the quality’s of Commitment, Integrity and Respect. These qualities were the basis of Frank Cairo’s success in the industry. He is the Founder and Visionary of MC College Group. Each winner received a personalized glass trophy. Congrats to the winners of this prestigious award!!
