LEBANON, Tenn. (WKRN) – The spirit was high at Wilson Central High School’s pep rally Friday as 19 students and two teachers cut off their hair to donate to those in need.
The student council came up with the “Wilson Central Making the Cut” challenge.
Participants had to donate at least eight inches that will be donated to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, an organization that creates wigs for those in need.
“I’m just really excited to give somebody who doesn’t, who can’t have hair. That really symbolizes, it’s a big symbol for women, so giving it to somebody who can’t have it is a really good cause,” student Lise Malherbe said.
Alison Lam added, “I got almost 13 or 14 inches cut off. It feels like a weight has been lifted off my shoulder, like literally and I’m really happy, because it went to a really good cause, but I miss my long hair already.”
The school has now challenged Mt. Juliet High School and Lebanon High School to do the same.
