Our Automotive Technology II class recently received the new TC3700 Tire Changer machine, a state-of-the art machine used in today's auto industry.
TV & radio host, author & speaker Benita Adams got a makeover in our Cosmetology department recently. Students assisted with her hair and makeup.
This past year of high school has been the best experience of my life. I'm so grateful to have accomplished my dreams of earning an advanced diploma from Great Bridge High School and my cosmetology license from the Center for Science and Technology. I am well prepared to attend Old Dominion University in the fall and earn my Bachelors of Science Degree in Business and Marketing. Never give up on your dreams; through persistence and hard work, anything is achievable.

I have always loved the arts, fashion, and make-up, but I was not sure how these interests could be applied to a career. After hearing about the programs offered at the Chesapeake Center for Science and Technology (CCST), I was intrigued. I discovered that after a two year program and a state board exam, I could become a licensed cosmetologist. Attending CCST taught me how to learn in a technical environment. With my experiences at CCST on my resume, I was accepted into all four colleges to which I applied. I chose Kent State and received a scholarship to study fashion design.
