Visalia, CA – On Wednesday, May 20, 2009 from 10am to 11am, Milan Institute of Cosmetology, a vocational school located in Visalia, CA, will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate its one-year anniversary. The school will host a continental breakfast in celebration of the event. Visalia Chamber of Commerce members will perform the ribbon cutting. The event is open to the public.
Gary Yasuda, President of Milan Institute of Cosmetology, will also attend the ribbon cutting ceremony. “Our school has been well received by the local community,” states Gary Yasuda. “Cosmetology is one of the hottest industries right now, and the San Joaquin Valley was in need of more schools that could provide professional career training for it. Milan has already experienced success here, and we are excited to see what the future will bring.”
The school first opened its doors to the community in January 2008. Since then, 158 students have enrolled and 18 have graduated. As more and more students join Milan Institute of Cosmetology, the school begins to plan for expansion.
