If they read for a total of 500,000 minutes in six weeks, she would reward them with a crazy stunt of their choosing.
The students needed a little extra time, but after seven weeks of reading or being read to for 30 minutes a day, they won the bet. Stunt suggestions ranged from dancing on the roof to being a student for a day, but the most popular was for Link to dye her hair. Link chose streaks of dark blue, the school color.
Her hair stylist, Christi Benson, at bottom, stopped by the school for the dye job, adding the color in front of 470 cheering students.
