Maryjane Johnson Receives Brooksie A. Pike Scholarship

 

Maryjane Johnson of Blackshear was recently selected as the 2012 Okefenokee Technical College Brooksie A. Pike Scholarship recipient for spring semester.

OTC cosmetology instructor Debra Moody and OTC Foundation Director Cindy Tanner presented Johnson with an award check and congratulated her for outstanding performance and success.

“I have been thinking about this idea since I was 16, and finally, I can make it happen,” writes Johnson on the Brooksie A. Pike Scholarship application. Her idea then was to complete the cosmetology program, work with and learn from others in a salon, and then, one day, open her own salon.

Johnson pursued other careers, but never forgot about her interest as a hair stylist. She graduated from Waycross College with an AAS in education and became the mother of three wonderful children.

“Maryjane’s enthusiasm for her career in cosmetology is contagious,” stated Tanner. “She makes you smile when she talks about her work at Curl Up and Dye Salon in Blackshear, and she’s serious about her future. I look forward to hearing about her upcoming accomplishments.”

“I am very pleased to present this award on behalf of the Pike family, the OTC Foundation trustees, and OTC Interim President Dr. Glenn Deibert,” stated Tanner when she met with Maryjane and Moody.

Johnson used her award check to pay for the cosmetology state board exam and other items that will help advance her career, explained Tanner. She asked me to thank everyone who made the scholarship possible, especially the Pike family.

The Brooksie A. Pike Scholarship was established by Dr. and Mrs. John Pike and other family members to pay tribute to Mrs. Brooksie Pike, Dr. John Pike’s mother, who had a forty-year career in cosmetology. To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must be full-time cosmetology students entering their final quarter at Okefenokee Technical College with a minimum of a 3.0 grade point average and excellent quarterly work ethics grades.

Two Brooksie A. Pike Scholarships are awarded each year to outstanding cosmetology students at Okefenokee Tech. The OTC Foundation would like to congratulate Maryjane Johnson and thank Dr. John Pike and Penny Pike for establishing the scholarship fund.
