Student Spotlight- Ema B.

Big picture

Student Spotlight for February 2019

New Life Academy of Excellence recognizes Ema B. in kindergarten for donating her hair to Children with Hair Loss.


Children With Hair Loss is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that provides human hair replacements at no cost to children and young adults facing medically-related hair loss. When a child's hair is lost due to Cancer treatments, Alopecia, Trichotillomania, Burns, etc., the painful effects are far deeper than just cosmetic. Each year, the number of children requesting our hair replacements increases and with your support, we can continue to increase the number of children we are able to help in the future!


Way to go Ema B.. Thank you for being a New Life Academy of Excellence Student Spotlight, sharing light within our community and being of service to those in need.


Do you have a student that you would like us to spotlight for serving our community? Email tjohnson@newlifeacademyga.com for more information.
