Carbon High teachers and students go bald for a cause
The Carbon High school students, faculty and staff continue to support one of their fellow classmates who is fighting cancer. Brook Sherman was diagnosed with cancer last year and her ongoing treatments continue to pile up medical bills for her family.
The Family, Career, Community and Leadership Association (FCCLA) at the school put on another fundraising effort to help out their classmate and her family. Spearheaded by Joy Malone, Emily Branch, T. J. Curtis, Theresa Montoya and Taren White they set a goal to raise at least a hundred dollars and for every $40 collected a student would shave their head in support of Sherman.
Well the idea caught fire and soon the bar was raised as the money kept piling in. More than 40 students ended up shaved, including one female student. For each $100 raised a male teacher would volunteer to go under the shears. If they hit $1,500 a female teacher had volunteered. Two more female teachers volunteered if the student body would raise at least $2,500.
On Tuesday 11 male and three female teachers sat down and went bald for the cause. The men included Mr. Jorgensen, Mr. Krause, Mr. Moynier, Mr. Kokal, Mr. Talyor, Mr. Bulter, Mr. Nunley, Mr. Jensen and Mr. Pinedo. The women were Mrs. Stockdale, Mrs. Scoville and Mrs. Kokal. The grand total was more than $2,800 raised in the four-day blitz.
