I loved this story from the moment I watched it. It made me proud to be a part of the same industry as these two barbers. They certainly are heroes. It is a great story worth sharing with your students. After watching the video, brainstorm with students and see if they can come up with ways that your school and student salon can give back to your community. Who knows, perhaps one day your students will inspire a news story like this.
