Woodruff Career and Technical Center is expanding its course offerings. Next year, the school plans to add fire science and EMT pathways.
Two years ago, Woodruff was one of the first schools in Illinois outside of Chicago to offer a course in hair braiding. The class allows high school students the ability to get a professional license after successfully completing 300 hours of practical experience.
Woodruff junior Arshiana Robinson-Walker says she first got interested in hair braiding long before she knew she could do it as a class.
