Schoolchildren in the Savannah (GA) area went back to school with plenty of supplies and new looks thanks to Saint Leo University’s Savannah Education Center. The center hosted an event—Fresh Start—on July 13 to give back to the community and raise awareness of the educational opportunities offered by the university. The Savannah center’s efforts drew news crews with coverage from WTOC-TV; WJCL-TV; WSAV-TV; the Savannah Morning News; and Southern Cross, the newspaper of the Catholic Diocese of Savannah.
The children and teens were treated to free haircuts, manicures, and hairstyles to try out for their back-to-school look. They also received Saint Leo book bags with supplies.
