Lanie Marie Hester Awarded Cosmetology Scholarship

November 9, 2018

Kaskaskia College is proud to announce that Alyssa Hails of Farrington is the recipient of the Lanie Marie Hester Memorial Cosmetology Scholarship.

The scholarship is in memory of Lanie, who was born on August 4, 2015. Like most little girls, Lanie loved dolls turtles, butterflies, flip flops, but most of all, Lanie enjoyed dressing up in fancy dresses and wearing lipstick. Sadly, Lanie lost her life on May 23, 2017, but as a way of keeping her name and memory alive, Lanie’s family has established this scholarship to assist students enrolled in the Cosmetology Program at Kaskaskia College.

Alyssa, daughter of Kirk and Kamla Hails, is a 2018 graduate of Webber High School and is pursuing Cosmetology.
