There's an 11-year-old kid named Jackson who goes to school in Packwood, Iowa. He decided to shave his head this past Sunday to support his grandfather who's battling stage-four lymphoma.

But when he went to school on Monday, other kids started making fun of him for it. Jackson's in the sixth grade, and they were calling him things like "Baldy", and telling him he had cancer.

Tim Hadley is their principal and when he heard about it, he decided Jackson needed a little support.

So Tim told him to bring his clippers to school the next day. Then he called an assembly and let everyone watch Jackson shave his head.

He says he did it to teach them to stand up for what they believe in, even if people make fun of it. And if you believe in someone else, you should stand up for them too.
