BRISTOL – Emily Camden, a 2011 graduate of St. Paul Catholic High School, cuts the hair of freshman Isabelle Kunze as part of a St. Paul initiative for the benefit of the American Cancer Society.

Eleven young women each donated at least eight and a half inches of their long hair in the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program, which raises money as well as collects hair that is used to make wigs for women battling cancer.

Ms. Camden, who works at a local hairdressing shop, donated her time for the initiative.

Norma Kendrick, a teacher at St. Paul, assisted, and thanked all those who helped organize and execute the event.

Besides Ms. Kunze, sophomores Ashley Crowley, Lizzie Darraghti, Alena Hauer and Victoria Kilbourne; juniors Molly Eaton and Alexandria Mourges; and seniors Maggie Carpenter, Steph Edick, Olivia Kilbourne and Michelle Misiti donated lengths of their hair.

The school counts service to others among its five core values.
