Mary Polter knows the benefit of education and hard work. In the late 1980s, she graduated from Moraine Park Technical College’s administrative assistant program while serving in the Army Reserves. For 25 years she worked in accounts payable at two employers. But when her department was outsourced overseas, she spent nine months searching for a new job. She considered her options and accepted her former employer’s reeducation funding.
Mary took a step in a new direction with college that had helped her in the past. She returned to Moraine Park to earn an associate degree in accounting.

The definition of art is: the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.
Cosmetology students definitely express their art skills through design and creativity working on clients and other projects. A project our current “Jr” class was given was to create something out of miscellaneous items. They could create whatever they wanted. Here are some photos that show them creating and what they came up with.
