Latham teacher volunteers for 'special duty'

Latham teacher Hannah Haas grins and bears it as Aaron Kendrick applies mayonnaise to her hair. He was the first of 14 students to apply condiments to Haas's hair as a result of achieving a score of at least a 95 percent on a social studies test.

Hannah Haas, teacher at Latham R-V School, volunteered for some rather unpleasant duty involving student achievement.

On Friday, Nov. 11, she sat in a chair outside while each seventh and eighth grade student who earned 95 percent or more on a recent social studies test, applied their "favorite condiment" to her hair. The range of condiments included pizza sauce, mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise, syrup and more.
