Growing Beards for a Good Cause

Seven Honors Program students participated in No-Shave November this past month, in which individuals forgo shaving for the month of November to “grow” cancer awareness and raise money for cancer research.  Beginning on October 31st between 10pm and 12am, the students were allowed to shave one last time before November began.  All participants were asked to donate any amount of money that they felt comfortable donating.  All of the proceeds were then donated to Pink Feet, a fundraising competition that is heavily supported by the Honors Student Advisory Council and supports the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation.  To celebrate the end of the month and the competition, a party and awards ceremony was held in the Honors Student Center on November 30th.  Awards were presented to Andrew Mason, Sam Ference, Eric Stauffer, Davis Simon, Spencer Wellington, and Will Camilleri for categories such as: Most Manly, Most Stylish, Best Neck Beard, and Overall Best.
