OFTC Student’s Apprenticeship Leads to Local Award

Sandersville, GA - Oconee Fall Line Technical College student Emmaline Godfrey has been working and going to school since the 9th grade, and her dedication to success has already paid off before she has completed college.

This month Emmaline was voted by locals in the Sandersville Progress newspaper poll as “Simply The Best Nail Tech” in Washington County.

“Thanks to everyone who voted for me; I am honored,” said Emmaline.

Emmaline currently works at The Hair Palace in Sandersville as an apprentice while she completes her Cosmetology diploma at Oconee Fall Line Technical College (OFTC).

“I started at OFTC right after high school graduation,” said Emmaline. “I love working in my hometown, and I am thankful for the opportunity to apprentice under Tracey Price while I’m still working to complete my diploma at OFTC.”

Apprentice training is on-the-job training in a salon under the direct supervision of a licensed, experienced master licensee.

“An apprenticeship is a great way to enter the industry,” said OFTC Cosmetology Instructor Lanie Freeman. “The curriculum and experience gained with the Cosmetology Diploma at OFTC prepares students for the state licensure exam. The additional hours of training with an apprenticeship, helps students earn money while they complete their education, build their clientele, and extend their range of specialty services.”

“Emmaline has a great head start in the business,” continued Freeman.
