Josh Johnson, UND alumnus and principal at Central Middle School in Devils Lake, told students he would have his head shaved in front of the whole school is they raised $5,000 for Haiti relief by Friday morning.

Jake Wateland, teacher and student council advisor, pledged the hair on his head if the students raised $7,000. Todd Lagasse, custodian, upped the ante to $10,000.

Johnson said a female teacher volunteered to have her head shaved if the students reach $15,000.

"We're definitely getting over $10,000 by tomorrow morning and this has happened all within a week," Johnson said Thursday.

The three will have their heads shaved before the student body at 8:45 a.m. Friday.
