   At one time Special Ed Teacher Assistant Vonceil Cochran was once a cosmetologist. 

   Cochran went to Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College and Hattiesburg School of Cosmetology, and got the License in Cosmetology, Degree in Secretary, and the Associate of Arts Degree. She graduated Miss. Gulf Coast College in 1990 and in 2011. 

   Before coming to the high school, Cochran owned her own business being a hairdresser and worked at G & K Ware in Richton, Miss. as a fabric utilization specialist. The factory closed so Cochran went to the middle school, then gave her name to the high school  

 ¨I was just looking for something to do. I wish I had done it sooner.¨ Cochran said.

   The most important goal she has for her kids is to get a regular degree. She is constantly helping her kids to achieve their goal. While helping with them, Cochran enjoys every moment she has with her kids.

   ¨Oh I love it!! I wish I had done this when I was younger!!¨, she said.
