No Shave November has seen Dr. Luke Francois, superintendent; Terry Cool, high school social studies teacher; Matt Austin, high school science teacher; and Kyle Carey, tech ed teacher, all put down their razors to join the movement that benefits the American Cancer Society.

The idea behind this effort is that the money someone would have normally spent on shaving and grooming in a month will instead be donated to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle.

Cancer is a disease that has touched virtually everyone on some level. Mr. Carey is growing his beard in honor of his dad with cancer, and Dr. Francois’ brother-in-law was diagnosed last month with an incurable form of cancer. 

Beyond that, they are supporting all of their fellow staff members who have, had, or will battle the disease.
