CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Six student stylists will be on-hand Thursday at the Cheyenne VA Medical Center to give the veteran residents there free haircuts.

IBMC College cosmetology students from the Cheyenne campus, 1854 Dell Range Blvd., will begin giving the haircuts at 2 p.m. January 14, at the medical center, 2360 E. Pershing Blvd.

“Being a military community our students take great pride in giving back to the veterans here in Cheyenne,” Karen Brownyard, lead Cosmetology instructor at the Cheyenne campus, said. “It is a great resume builder for our students. They are always super excited when they see VA Cuts on their books!”

This event corresponds with the philosophy at IBMC, where Caring Individuals … Changing Lives is shown throughout the campus. Cheyenne cosmetology students also gave free haircuts in celebration of Veterans’ Day.

“We are happy to have the chance to offer these men a complimentary haircut,” Archie Randall, IBMC Cheyenne campus president, said of the event in November. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Cheyenne Veterans Hospital in the near future, and helping more individuals who have served.”

For more information about the event, please contact IBMC Cheyenne campus president, Archie Randall, or lead Cosmetology instructor Karen Brownyard at (307) 433-8363.
