Anna Moore '21 watches Julia Bernat '21 cut a strand of Moore’s hair after school in the commons during the annual West High School Dance Marathon hair drive on Jan. 11. “I had wanted to cut my hair for a few months,” Moore said. “[I] waited until the West High Dance Marathon hair drive because I knew people who had donated their hair in the past and I thought it sounded like a cool way to help out. It’s a little thing to do for a great cause.”
