School Sends Girl Home for Shaving Her Head in Support of Best Friend
Jamie Olson Renfro Facebook
9-year-old Kamryn Renfro shaved her head to support her friend, Delaney Clements, who is battling cancer. Chemotherapy made Delaney’s hair fall out. The girls attended Caprock Academy in Grand Junction, until the school said Kamryn had violated their dress code and asked her not to return to school until her hair grows back out.
Her mother posted the story on Facebook and it went viral. Mrs. Renfro noted her daughter’s courage, bravery and selflessness while at the same time admitting she’d signed off on the school policy.
Renfro has been given permission to return to school and there is a special meeting at 6 p.m. tonight to discuss the school policy.
