Educators Visit Career and Tech Programs
Posted on May 9, 2012
Brentwood UFSD officials tour MTC and visit with their students.
When Brentwood officials visited the Milliken Technical Center recently to see how their students are doing in the career and technical courses, several commented that the equipment available to students is impressive. The group first stopped in the Medical Assisting classroom where teacher and Registered Nurse Mary Ann DeMillio answered questions and Brentwood students performed blood pressure screenings.

The next stop was Barbering where Brentwood High School Principal Richard Loeschner spoke with Brentwood students and received a haircut. He viewed the equipment as teacher Luke Mahoney explained, “This barbershop is state-of-the-art and we’re the model for New York State. The agency spent about half a million dollars on this.” Meanwhile, in Cosmetology, Brentwood High School Assistant Principal Jeanette Suarez and Brentwood’s liaison Lisa Anderson received paraffin treatments.

MTC Assistant Principal Donna Singer and Guidance Counselor Cheryl Cohen, who arranged for the two-hour visit, guided guests through the building. Afterwards, they all enjoyed brunch, prepared and served by Culinary Arts students who accepted compliments, especially for the spinach quiche.
