Frontier Middle gets thanks for Goin' Bald for Bucks success

All those bald heads at Frontier Middle School the last three years are getting some thanks, after raising more than $95,000 to fight cancer.

The school has participated in the Goin' Bald for Bucks the last three years, and it was the top fundraiser for two consecutive years.

Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer recognized the school Tuesday for its outstanding support. Hospital representatives surprised students with the unveiling of a large blue buffalo, one of the Herd for Hope that represents local companies and individuals coming together to raise funds and support research at the cancer center.

Social Studies teacher Shannon Gonzalez, who was the first to nominate the school, told her survival story for the first time publicly after being diagnosed with melanoma last year. Gonzalez, who was the first to nominate the school, has no evidence of the disease spreading. The committee also received 15 other nominations for Frontier Middle.

Faculty, staff, students and their families have shaved, cut and dyed their hair to raise funds.
