Moms and more pampered on Spa Day
ALBANY, N.Y. (May
7, 2018) – Abrookin
Career and Technical Center Principal Andrea Marques was one of many who
turned out for some pampering Saturday at the school’s Mother’s Day Spa.
Abrookin is home to
Albany High School’s career and technical education programs. On Spa
Day, students in the Cosmetology Department provided a host of services
to those who came for a springtime spruce-up. Clients received two spa
services for $20 ranging from manicures to massages to facials to foot
care to all manner of hair styling.

New this year, high
school cosmetology students acted as tutors and mentors to students in
the Cosmetology Club from Arbor Hill Elementary School, who in turn
assisted the older students.
All services were
performed under the supervision of Abrookin cosmetology teachers.
As a bonus, every
woman who attended left with a long-stemmed yellow rose
