Cople Students Cut Up!
Ten lucky Cople students were able to “cut” their principal’s and assistant principal’s hair as part of a fund raiser for Relay for Life. During extended session, the school was raising funds for the Relay for Life program and to make students more aware of ways to help with cancer funding. Recognizing students who were coming to the extended session and working hard, students could purchase tickets for 50 cents. They could also earn tickets for missing less than one day in extended session. On the last day of school, ten names were drawn to cut the administrators’ hair.
Reminiscent of a scene from the Wizard of Oz, the students snipped a little bit here and a little bit there. With the assistance of instructors, Kathryn Wittman and Anne Evans, the students lined up and gingerly made their cuts on the hair of Sheri Almond, principal and Stephanie Lambrecht, assistant principal. Participating students included Destiny Ashton, Sarah Brooke Bowen, Ahmon Brown, Ce’niya Candia, Sergio Doantes-Serrano, Kevin Ellis, Emma Oliver, Gloria Orrock, Julius Plummer, and Chasity Tolson. When all was done, a bag full of hair was collected for children with hair loss. And a big lesson in humility and caring was made by these wonderful students.
