Independence opts to make a change

Independence Academy Charter School conducted its fourth annual Change for Change drive April 8–18 and collected more than $2,800 for the American Cancer Society. 

Students and community members brought in their “spare change” to donate to the fundraiser and a total of $2,873.93 was collected.

Because the total exceeded the goal of $2,600, one of the staff members agreed to shave his head and dress as the school’s mascot, the Phoenix. A shaving ceremony and school assembly took place Thursday and included the presentation of a check to an American Cancer Society representative.
