Nervous looks as hair cut for charity

SALISBURY — Locks of Love will soon gain 90 inches of lovely locks thanks to the big hearts of eight students and one teacher from Sacred Heart Catholic School.
They donated their hair as part of the school’s end of the year pep rally Friday afternoon.
Third-grader Hannah Smith said she was giving and receiving after donating her blonde, curly hair.
“I wanted to help all the little kids and I wanted to have a cute summer haircut,” she said.
Second-grader Carolina Clark said she knows people need the hair, and doesn’t mind shearing her own for another’s happiness.
“I want to give all the little kids a chance to have hair,” she said. “I know that people need it everywhere and it’s going to go to a good cause.”
Fifth-grade teacher Tracy Sentilles also decided to donate.
This year made the seventh year in a row Sacred Heart has donated hair to Locks of Love as part of its end of the year celebration.
Kindergartner Megan Meyers said she was really excited about getting her hair cut.
“I want people to have hair and not be bald so people won’t make fun of them,” she said.
Until Friday afternoon, kindergartner Lillian Rattz had never cut her hair, only her bangs.
“I’ve grown it all my life,” she said.
And the reason she was cutting it?
“Because I love my mommy and my daddy,” she said.
Each student had to lose 10 inches of hair in order for it to be donated to Locks of Love.
