An 11-year-old 6th grader kid had a grandfather with cancer, so to support him he shaved his own head, but the little jerks at school bullied him so hard, the school’s principal took matters into his own hands.
HE SHAVED HIS OWN HEAD IN FRONT OF THE WHOLE SCHOOL.
Tim Hadley has been a principal at Pekin Middle School for the past three years.
After sixth grader Jackson was taunted, Principal Hadley let Jackson shave his head in front of the school.
"It really struck me," said Hadley. "He's just a kid. He's already going through something with his grandpa. Stage four Lymphoma."
According to Hadley, Jackson told his mom he wanted to shave his head in support of his grandpa on Sunday. But when he went in for school on Monday, his new 'do wasn't well-received.
That night, Jackson's mom called principal Hadley to voice her concerns.
"Some of his friends came up to him and asked, 'Hey, do you have cancer?' or 'Hey, baldy,'" so the principal decided to hold an impromptu assembly. Then, Jackson was called to the front of the room and handed the clippers.
THATS FREAKIN COOL.
