Cosmetology student on path of success

NORWALK - Bryan Griffith, of Downey, was one of two cosmetology students at Cerritos College to receive the $500 City of Norwalk Cosmetology Scholarship. The recently-established scholarship recognizes cosmetology students who volunteered at the City of Norwalk Locks of Love hair drive event last September. "The event was an opportunity for women, men and children to donate their hair to cancer patients," said Gina Cosylion, recreation coordinator for the city of Norwalk, who presented the checks to Griffith and student Alecea Duran. Coming from a family of hairstylists and barbers, Griffith's decision to enroll in the cosmetology program was a logical and natural choice. Griffith is vice president of the Cosmetology Club and, upon completing his associate degree in cosmetology and bachelor's in business, plans to open his own hair salon.********** Published: March 27, 2009 - Volume 7 - Issue 49
