Principal goes Gaga, milks cow to celebrate book challenge
In November, a promise was made to the students of the Roger Clap Innovation School in Dorchester that involved a certain principal, a flamboyant pop diva, and a cow.
Justin Vernon, the principal of the school along with Barry Tatelman, formerly of Jordan’s Furniture, challenged students to read 10,000 books by the end of the school year as part of the Clap's “We’re Booking it Challenge.” Students said that if they hit that number Vernon should dress up like Lady Gaga and milk a cow.
On Tuesday, at Moakley Field in South Boston, there was a cow, there was a principal dressed like Lady Gaga, and 168 excited students who read a combined 13,000 books, eager to see their principal, fishnets and all, get down on his hands and knees and provide Moxie, a two-year-old dairy cow from Richardson’s Ice Cream in Middleton, a little relief.
Dressed in a skimpy black cocktail dress, long blond wig, high-heels, and a tiara Vernon, after a little of instruction, gave a tug on the udder of the brown and white cow, shooting milk onto the grass followed by cheers and laughter from his students.
