SOUTHEASTERN’S SENIOR IN THE SPOTLIGHT: Hannah Santos, Cosmetology, Foxborough
As a final farewell to the senior class of 2020, Southeastern’s Social Media and Public Relations Club gave select seniors a moment in the spotlight for their outstanding achievements throughout the years.
Four-year honor student, Hannah Santos (Foxboro), earned her spot for her dedication in many areas around the school. Primarily, her focus was in her program, Cosmetology, which gave her a world of opportunities such as becoming a licensed Cosmetologist by taking the official board exam. With this license, Hannah plans to become a Cosmetologist as she “loves making people feel good about themselves and loves doing hair!” Other achievements included participating in Avant-Garde, which is a special competition where Cosmetology students showcase their skills and creativity in their art. Even with so much love for her shop, Hannah also had an interest in traveling and was the President of the Travel Club.
Outside of high school, Hannah has a job at H2T Salon & Spa and enjoys working with the homeless through LYNN Ministries. After graduation, she is determined to travel as well as pursue her dream as a Cosmetologist. Lastly, the advice she has for her freshman self can be relatable to many, “Stress less and focus on your goals.”
