Northside high hosts hair drive for cancer | News
Students at Northside High in Warner Robins shared their strength with a ponytail.
They lined up to donate their locks in the school's hair drive.
Mary Anne Veach, a math teacher at Northside, grew her hair out so one of her students could help cut it for the drive.
Veach's student, Alexis Slater, is a cancer survivor and senior at the school.
She says she was happy that so many were donating. "It's just so awesome to be here and know that they're doing this for a good cause," says Slater.
Professionals from Awaken Salon and Spa were on hand to trim each lady's hair.
Veach says her donation was the least she could give. "To help give someone the option to be more confident and comfortable through such a hard time they're struggling with so much already this is the least you can do to help them feel more comfortable," says Veach.
Eleven people donated their hair to the Pantene Going to Beautiful Lengths Campaign.
The donated hair will help create free wigs for those with cancer.
