Pueblo Diversified Industries (PDI) is a company that offers jobs to mentally disabled people of all ages. Many consumers of PDI had never been to a prom before, and the facility happily provided them with a prom setting. The women of PDI were able to get their hair, make-up and nails done. In addition, they were provided with gowns donated by the Pueblo Police Department. They also enjoyed a spaghetti dinner before the dance to complete their prom experience.
“The makeovers turned out fabulous. Each woman felt and looked amazing. All involved were very excited and honored - both consumers and students,” says IntelliTec Cosmetology instructor Kryste Brown. IntelliTec students who participate in two events like this during their 15-month Cosmetology program will receive a special certificate. Visit http://www.intelliteccollege.com/
Brown comments “Every student felt honored to help, everything that was done to the employees was appreciated.”
