  • Holiday tradition of "Cuts for Christmas" helps deserving students, honors educator who started event

    Family of friends of David Pollard joined Monday with Carver High School to continue Pollard's annual “Cuts for Christmas” tradition. The event was started by Pollard, the Carver High School baseball coach killed in an automobile accident April 18, 2016. Pollard believed that “When you look good, you feel good!” and started the event as a way to reward and encourage students for good behavior and exceeding classroom expectations. It's also an opportunity to help students who might not be able to afford to look good everyday due to financial constraints. Four local barbers provided free haircuts to deserving male students,who also received lunch and a Christmas present. There was no cost for students participating in Cuts for Christmas.
