On Saturday, April 25, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Cheyenne Goodwell, Eastern Center for Arts and Technology (EASTERN) Cosmetology student and Cheltenham High School senior, along with the assistance of nine of her classmates and her EASTERN Cosmetology Instructor, Wendy Leyden, held a cosmetology clinic at EASTERN’s Terwood Road campus. Cheyenne’s clinic raised $501 to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Cheyenne and her classmates provided low-cost cosmetology services such as eye brow, chin and lip waxing, manicures, nail designs, facials, up-do hair styles, haircuts, braids, roller sets, highlights, and hair color. They had a great turnout throughout the day.
“During the clinic, an MS Society representative spoke about the disease, and my sister, Jessica Johnson, who currently lives with MS, spoke about her struggles,” said Cheyenne. “It was an amazing event, and I truly want to thank all of my classmates who volunteered their time and talents to make it such a success.”
Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is a collective group of passionate individuals who want to do something about multiple sclerosis now—to move
together toward a world free of multiple sclerosis.
EASTERN’s Cosmetology program provides the skills necessary to begin a career in the cosmetology field. In Pennsylvania, as well as other states, cosmetologists and nail technicians must be licensed to practice in the field.
