It'd been a week long process - with incentives if they reach their goal.
"We get to shave one of our teachers heads if we raise thirty five hundred dollars," says Sophomore Molly Carlton.
That teacher was Sonrisa Nolan, a speech teacher at Stark County High School
"They were like, 'Hey! If we raise this much money, will you shave your head?' I'm like, 'Sure!'," said Nolan. "That was December, and now, it is a reality."
For Carlton, the rally was more than just shaving a teachers head, the cause hits home for her.
"I strive to do this, because on December 9th, my Godbrother died from Lymphona," said Carlton.
She decided to start Hope Week at Stark County - all week, the school has been raising money for Saint Jude - through raffle, shirt sales, and a penny competition between classes. Their goal? thirty five hundred dollars.
Senior Student Council member Shania Kraklow said, "We've had a lot of people that aren't even on Student Council be like, ' What can i do to help?' They've just stepped up and helped tremendously."
"I'm pretty sure that we raised our goal to, not to be mean, but to shave our teacher's head," added Carlton
The school was able to raise over five thousand dollars.
And because they went over, teacher Sonrisa Nolan had to go bald.
"Cold," said Nolan. "Very cold. But it is good."
She doesn't mind, if it is for a good cause...and to see the cohesion and the hard work amongst all the students through the entire week.
"The kids put so much work in to this, and it is such a great statement," said Nolan. "Honestly, I am not the least bit worri3ed about walking around with my head bald, because if anyone asks what happened, Ill say, ' We have amazing kids at Stark County that raised a lot of money."
"It is a non-profit organization, and I that what we are going is really good investment, something we are going to be proud of," added Carlton.
The idea of "Hope Week" has been catching on with other area schools.
Started by Eureka High School, the week is dedicated to cancer awareness and raising money to help find a cure.
