Forging ahead in the arena of Cosmetology education, Cosmetology Career Institute has improved upon the concept of “reasonably ensuring
students’ development of job skills and knowledge necessary foremployment.” Joining with Career Services of Texas A&M University-Commerce, CC Institute offers business etiquette dinners to students as part of their career preparation.
On Monday, April 25th, Cosmetology Career Institute of Greenville (TX) offered a business etiquette dinner focusing on guest speaker René
Smith Teague-Osuna of René’s Lagniappe Salon in McKinney (TX). Ms. Osuna’s large “high-end” salon is well known in the north Dallas market. She opened the event, sharing her life story of early struggle to her career success. Osuna imparted timeless truths and wisdom to CC Institute students and challenged them to separate themselves from being “average” to begin their own journey toward being an achiever. Upon graduation, many of these CC Institute students will work, , in the greater McKinney area.
Tina Boitnott of Career Services at TAMU – Commerce led the etiquette portion of the dinner. Instructing the CC Institute students on a variety of topics from food and utensil location on a dining table, to utensil use and excusing oneself from the table. “Ultimately, common sense prevails at these events,” said Boitnott as she answered students’ questions.
