A student at our school, Melissa Smith has recently been diagnosed with cancer. In an effort to help with this terrible discovery the Be the Change team and the Cosmetology ladies are going to be running a hair drive today, Friday and Saturday, June 1 to 3. The campaign is called “Blonde for Bones.” If you do not want to donate hair there will be sponsorships available and a gofundme page as well to help show your support. Bracelets and pins will also be sold. We thank the community in advance for helping during such a difficult time. There is a poster attached to the bottom of the article.
