AMBOY (WIFR) -- A Stateline teacher has been linked to rockers Sammy Hagar and Robert Plant, but today he’s going for a different look.
Allen Duerksen teaches 6th grade social studies at Amboy Junior High School and today he let his students cut off his golden locks. It’s to kick off their yearly service project. This time, they’re raising money for cancer research.
"We're bringing awareness to people who go through chemotherapy and when they lose their hair, it's no choice of theirs and we're just trying to bring that to peoples' attention,” said Duerksen.
Past service projects include raising money for operation migration and bright stars in Joplin.
