LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A group of elementary students learned a life lesson Thursday night: follow through on your promises.

Rineyville Elementary School Principal Billy Coffey bet his third, fourth and fifth grade students last year that if they ranked first in testing, he would shave his head -- and they came out on top, at first in the region.

So Coffey followed through on his end of the bet during last night's awards night. With students shouting, "Shave that head! Shave that head! Shave that head!" he got a cool cut.
