  • Music Education Alum Jayme Anderson Shaves Head to Support Student with Cancer

    Alumna Jayme Anderson (BME, Music Education, 2002) teaches music at Randall Elementary School in Taylor. When she learned that her student Roza Williams was going through cancer treatments and had shaved her head, Ms. Anderson decided to support Roza by shaving her head too. 

    Roza told WDIV, "I'm 9 years old and I’m in third grade. I'm happy because my teacher Ms. Anderson, she makes me feel beautiful with these headbands."

    "I didn’t want school to be her trauma like it was for me," Anderson said. "I made a video the week before just explaining to her what I was going to do and just to build her back up so she could walk through those doors the first day. Then I made a video of myself shaving my head the night before school."

    "It made me really happy to know that I’m not alone in the school," said Williams.
