This month’s spotlight highlights Cosmetology, Construction Tech | News, Sports, Jobs

Working on developing cosmetology skills at the Columbiana County Career and Technical Center.

The CCCTC programs being featured in November are Cosmetology and Construction Technology.

These programs are very popular with students because students gain the skills and certifications they need to enter straight into the workforce upon graduation. Even though students can enter the workforce, they may also pursue an alternative path and choose to take advantage of the articulation agreements available for these programs to further their education. Finally, like other programs, businesses know that hiring construction and cosmetology students from the CCCTC means they have skilled workers who can contribute to the success of their business on day one of employment.

Senior Spotlight: Hoboken’s Chelsea Melendez is always seeking new challenges

Pushing her boundaries is nothing new for Hoboken’s Chelsea Melendez.

Later that year, she continued to push beyond her comfort zone and joined the softball team. And just this year, with the volleyball season pushed back to March, she decided to try something new and join the cheerleading squad.

Harris Faulkner Gets a Bigger Spotlight at Fox News Channel

Click here to read the full article.

Meghan McCain says one of the biggest lessons in her TV career came when she was working alongside Harris Faulkner in the run up to the 2016 election at Fox News Channel.

A viewer had slipped into her direct messages on Twitter with an unpleasant remark, and McCain, who says she is prone to react to such things, learned a different strategy from Faulkner, with whom she appeared regularly on the  Fox News early-afternoon program “Outnumbered.”  The advice? “You’ve got to give people like that honey,” she recalls.
