WMS Making a Cut to Cure Cancer

WMS Making a Cut to Cure Cancer


Warwick Middle School’s Student Council recently sponsored a volleyball tournament to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Two rounds of games were held - one for seventh grade teams, and one for eighth grade teams. The competition was intense, and many teams showed their spirit by creating unique team uniforms. The top team from each grade then battled each other in a championship game held on March 1, 2017. The eighth graders were victorious. The winning team had a great incentive - they got to cut Assistant Principal Mrs. Michelle Harris’s hair in front of the rest of the student body on March 6! The winning team (all boys) opted to watch from the sidelines and handed the hair cutting responsibilities over to the second place winners (all seventh grade girls). The girls had instructions to cut Mrs. Harris’s hair directly above the rubber band guides that were holding her hair in sections around her head. The pony tails were put into place prior to the cutting by Stephanie Bollinger, owner of Classic Images Salon who will now submit the severed sections to Pantene Beautiful Lengths (they require 8” lengths for donation) a charity that makes wigs for people fighting cancer. All together, the WMS Student Council raised $352.25 to help children battling cancer.
