A Close Shave: Principal Gets Mohawk for Students’ LEAP Success
- April 15, 2009
Talk about your hairy situations. Southeast Middle School Principal Hollis Milton promised students earlier this year that if they showed up every day for testing and did well on the annual LEAP assessment, he would shave his hair into a Mohawk and dye it blue. They kept their end of the bargain, so Milton did, too.
In a gym assembly April 9, Milton (sitting in photo) let teacher Steven Crawford (standing) buzz-cut his hair and dye what was left to the cheers of students and staff. In preparing for LEAP, his students had participated in the ABE Program, which stands for Attendance, Behavior and Effort.
In addition to the “Mohawk” incentive for LEAP testing, Assistant Principal Paul Shelton wore a dress at the assembly.
