ÉOJHS Teacher Shaves His Lid for Cancer

On June 3rd, École Okotoks Junior High School’s Music Director/Drama Instructor Sam Shumka followed through on his commitment to shave his head after his students exceeded their fundraising goal of $1,000 for the Tom Baker Cancer Centre. Sam pitched the fundraising idea in honour of a colleague who is battling cancer. Students raised $1,600 at the school’s May 28th Spring Concert, where the grade 7/8 and grade 9 Bands, and the Concert Choir all performed. If you would like to make a donation, contact the school at 403-938-4426.
