NSU Health and Exercise Science senior and KA member, Matt Salinas, got a haircut with a purpose Thursday, May 12 as his hair went from below the shoulder to above the collar. Barber Katey Linebaugh of City Barber Shop carefully clipped Matt’s flowing locks for a donation to Children With Hair Loss, a charity that uses donated hair to construct free hair replacements for children who have lost their hair due to cancer treatments and other illnesses.
Mr. Salinas’ hair was well over the required 8 inches for a donation. His hair was carefully braided before being cut and is now on its way to helping a child facing illness have one less obstacle to overcome. Well done sir!
In the words of Lt. Col. Smith of the North Georgia College Corps of Cadets: “Keep America Beautiful-Get a haircut!” (and if you have 8 inches or more of hair, put it to good use.)
