Novembeard: Things are Getting Hairy at MHS

by Brett Hoffman
     As the weather gets colder and the days get shorter, the faces of students and teachers start to get a little fuzzy.
   “I was going to do it, but my face gets too scratchy,” sophomore Peyton Baker said.
   No Shave November developed from the Movember charity group, who formed in 1999. The group started the trend of growing mustaches to spread the awareness of cancer and to help combat the disease. This eventually spread from mustaches to beards, and finally to not shaving at all the entire month of November.
   “I don’t like No Shave November because guys with beards are weird,” junior Hayley Wyble said.
   This has been a tradition among students for years, but this year the teachers are getting involved. The male teachers in the school are participating in a competition organized by Mr. Oggy Brewer and Mr. Tim Vanwanzeele. The teachers competing have agreed to not shave this month, and at the end of the month the students get to decide who has the best beard. The teachers who are not picked have to donate five dollars to research for cancer.
   “It’s a fun competition for a great cause,” Brewer said.
