The President’s Unsung Hero for January 2014

January 13, 2014

Since 1963, Elnora Medley has been coming to Clover Park Technical College's Cosmetology Program to have her hair done. She has seen the program move to four different buildings, including an old barracks, and transition through the many chemicals and methods to set her perm over the past 50 years. All along she has been a staunch supporter of the program and the students. So much so, that she volunteers to serve as a model and supporter to students who sit for their state board certifications each year. At 94 years old, Ms. Medley still comes every few weeks to have her perm set and hair trimmed. Her commitment to the students and the program make her a true unsung hero. Thank you Ms. Medley!
