Nyla Saines Clarksville High School
Since I was five-years-old I’ve always loved doing people’s hair and nails,” Nyla Saines said. Through the Clarksville High CTE cosmetology program, she made her dream a reality.
Nyla Saines became the first Tennessee high school student to receive her Cosmetology license through an apprenticeship model, while still a full-time student.
"Nyla has always worked so hard and stayed so determined in her journey of obtaining her cosmetology license. It definitely took hard work, perfected skills, and lots of focus to accomplish what she did,” said Laina Shearon, CHS Cosmetology instructor.
The apprenticeship provides a practical and professional experience as the students work towards completing their 1500 required hours before they are eligible to take the state board practical exam. Students receive official licensure from the State of Tennessee after passing this exam.
