Our Hero: Ms. Burzinski
Posted on October 1st, 2015
What would it take for you to shed your locks? For our gr 5 teacher, Ms. Burzinski (Ms. B!), the opportunity to raise money for cancer research was enough to put her in the barber chair. Prior to participating in the Terry Fox Run, students gathered in the gym in hopes of being drawn to shave Ms. B's head. The three lucky winners started cutting cautiously, but were quickly encouraged by a "Shave her head!" chant. Soon the curls were falling quickly and Ms. B went from head of hair to Mr. Clean. With the last cut, Ms. B was quickly surrounded by her class in a supportive group hug.
With pledges for the Terry Fox Run and Ms. B's head shave, Whitecourt Central proudly donated $3400 to the Terry Fox Foundation.
