Omega- Omega school principal, Pat Newsome, let students put tar, actually melted chocolate, and feathers all over her body, after they sold over ten thousand dollars worth of pizzas.

Newsome promised the students if they raised at least one thousand dollars, she would let them tar and feather her. The money was raised to benefit eighth street middle school principal, Jack Gibbs, who was diagnosed with liver cancer.

Newsome says, "It's up to us as educators to teach students the importance of giving back."

Two students also received new bikes during the assembly for the highest pizza sales and perfect school attendance.
