MADISON, AL (WAFF) - When 13-year-old Laura Weber learned of kids who were suffering from diseases and unable to grow hair, she wanted to do something about it.
"Well, I cut my hair for locks for love. It used to be down to about down to my lower back," she said.
Now with a shoulder length style, she said it wasn't a hard decision make.
"It does make me feel good to help people," she said.
The 7th grader attends Discovery Middle School in Madison and besides having a generous heart, she's a good student.
"Well what I like about learning is you get to learn new things, so you get to just expand your mind," Laura explained.
Laura is a straight A student, who has already taken the ACT's and scored high enough to be recognized by Duke TIPS. She plays the clarinet for her school band, is a girl scout, and loves fantasy books.
For having a good heart and being a top student, Laura Weber is our Star Student of the week.
