Thursday, April 4, during our 6th Annual FBLA/NHS Hair Donation Drive, we collected over 140 inches of hair for Pantene's Beautiful Lengths!
Sunnyside High School's Future Business Leader's of America and National Honor Society collaborated on this community service project to benefit cancer patients of all ages.
Our heart-felt thanks go out to:
-the students and community members who donated hair;
-Angela (Stylist), for donating three hours of her time to cut and style hair;
-the faculty for excusing donors running a bit late and;
-the faculty for allowing FBLA & NHS members to work the activity.
Thank you! --Ana Danehy, CTE Business Teacher, FBLA & NHS Advisor

Those five won top medals in their role plays and Arnie Martinez won three medals: one for his role play, one for having the overall highest score and one for having the highest score on his marketing exam. So congrats to all of them.
