True to his promise to young readers, Modesto school aide gets head shaved

Sanjay Bhan pledged to get his head shaved if students at Rose Avenue Elementary School met their teachers' challenge to read 14,000 books from December to February.

The kids left no margin for error, reading 18,414 books.

On Friday, 21 students - the top readers from each class - got to help shave off Bhan's black locks with electric clippers.

Bahn is a paraprofessional on the school staff, helping with special education programs.
