Alex Benedict

Iolan Alex Benedict donated nearly five years of hair — more than 16 inches — Friday to Wigs For Kids, a group that provides wigs or other services for youngsters dealing with the side effects of cancer treatments or other medical issues. The impetus for Benedict’s donation was to honor his grandmother and other friends who had been afflicted with cancer. Benedict is uncertain whether he’ll allow his hair to grow or if he’ll retain his new style. Manning the clippers for Benedict’s haircut was Jerri Lieurance of Addictive Trendz Salon in Iola.
