“This is what I want to do to make Jane smile,” said Kingwood High School Assistant Principal Mary Elizabeth Smith. She is one of more than eight students and staff who went under the knife today. OK, it was clippers. All of them shaved their heads for school registrar Jane Murray who was recently diagnosed with Stage 3 lung cancer.
“Jane Murray means so much to Kingwood High School and so much to me as a friend,” Smith said. “I’m a little bit concerned about giving students scissors and razors but they have told me they will be gentle.”
Students who donated money were entered into a random drawing to wield the clippers.
“I’m a little concerned but they assured me a tutorial session was given,” said Principal Dr. Ted Landry who took it all in stride.
This is just one of many events designed to raise money to help pay Jane Murray’s medical bills. Her daughter Cassandra Campbell says her mom misses being on campus. “Here she got to be Jane, she got to be funny, she got to laugh and leave everything behind so i’m sure that daily its a struggle not to have that,” Campbell added.
More than $9,000 was raised in just this event. But the outpouring of love is immeasurable.
