When sophomore Jordan J asked Headmaster Mike Murphy to join him in shaving his head as an act of solidarity with Olivia R, another 10th grader who was undergoing chemotherapy to fight a lymphoma tumor, Mr. Murphy said, “If you can raise $1000 for Relay For Life.” His father, Marc, was standing by and blurted out, “Done.”
Three weeks and $22,000 dollars later, Shorecrest hosted a televised head shaving event. Billy Hume from Billy’s Corner Barber Shop on 4th Street agreed to buzz Mr. Murphy's head and to help raise money for Relay. Jess Farkas donated her time to buzz Jordan's head in front of the cameras in March of 2015.
"I am inspired by the leadership, concern for others and initiative demonstrated by our Shorecrest students as they commit to this service endeavor." Headmaster Mike Murphy commended.
