In honor of Grace Thatcher, several of our students and staff grew their hair for one full year so that it could be CUT and DONATED to Covering Young Heads to Heal Young Hearts. We honored each person with an all school assembly that included a countdown to the cutting of braids and pony tails. You can read more about the event in the Grand Rapids Press article by Matt Vande Bunte.
Many thanks to Cheri Stacey and Susie Coxen who organized this event. We also want to thank the following businesses for their support of this event:
Salon Nouveau and all the stylists who came to cut hair at the event.
Douglas J Institute who donated 17 free hair cuts and 3 pedicures.
New 4 U who donated 4 purses w/ earrings and three $10 gift certificates (a new re‑sale shop in downtown Hudsonville on next to Gemmen’s.
