OHS Dean of Students Morley shaves head for St. Baldrick's during spring pep rally

On Thursday morning, Oswego High School hosted its winter and spring sports pep rally out on the turf field with a performance by the Oswego Marching Buccaneers Pep Band, a commemorative athletics slideshow, and the conclusion of OHS's St. Baldrick's Foundation fundraising efforts.

Oswego High School Dean of Students Penny Morley pledged that she would shave her head for St. Baldrick's Foundation if students raised more than $2,200 for charity this spring. Together, our Bucs raised over $2,400!

"Leave the mullet, or shave it all?" One student asked the sea of Buc students in the bleachers. Their response did not disappoint.

Coach Dominick "Dom" Pike participated in this year's head shaving effort, noting his past personal battles with cancer. Named Coach of the Year in 2021, Pike is the head coach of both the varsity boys and girls cross country teams at Oswego High School.

Morley smiled her way through as track and field/cross country students and Pike took turns shaving sections of her head.

"As many of you know, I've been involved with St. Baldrick's for many years. It's very special to me. Therefore, you all should be very proud of yourselves for what you've done to help find a cure," Pike said.

In the 16 years since its introduction to Oswego County, local St. Baldrick's Foundation organizers, volunteers, and community members have raised over $990,000 to fight childhood cancer. Pike notes that he hopes 2023 is the year in which the $1,000,000 mark is broken.

"We're so close to reaching that goal of one million dollars - next year I hope that we can make it happen," Pike said.
