South Edmonson Elementary held a special assembly this morning to recognize second grader Julie Norris, daughter of Brent and Pauline Norris, for donating her hair to Locks of Love. During the assembly, Julie’s father and her friend, Patience Anderson, cut her long hair in front of the student body. Emily Ellis, owner of The Springs Salon, then gave Julie a new cut and style.
At the end of the assembly, Julie came back to reveal her new, shorter hair style. When Mr. Woosley asked Julie why she wanted to donate her hair to Locks of Love, she simply said, “To help somebody.”
Principal Jamie Woosley said, “This is a great example of the leadership qualities we are trying to instill in our students here at South Edmonson. We want our students to see that they can have an impact on others and we are so proud of Julie for setting this goal and seeing it through to the end.”
Julie has been working toward this goal for over two years South Edmonson said they were so glad that the student body was able to celebrate her achievement. The school also wanted to say special thanks to Emily Ellis for her help in making this happen. The Edmonson Voice salutes Julie Norris for being a leader and making a difference in someone's life.
