Cosmetology students traveled to Fountain Inn, SC to visit the Nirvana Cultural Center on October 21, 2016 marking the inaugural trip for the HCTC activity bus. According to Dr. Rivers, in an interview with student reporters from HCTC-TV, the main goal of the 14 seat passenger bus is to transport students to various locations so that they can have experiences that will help them to see what is available to young people.
