Barbershop owner raises money to pay off high school debts

In Charlotte, North Carolina, a barbershop owner learned that some seniors at a nearby high school were at risk of not graduating because they had overdue school fees that weren’t paid, so she stepped up and did something about it.

Season Bennett got the word out and inspired the community to donate money to help the kids out.

Sure enough. They sent in donations totaling $4,500, which wiped out the debts of 24 students, allowing them to walk across the graduation stage and earn their diplomas with the rest of their class.
