Lonnie Smith, a health teacher at Western High School, got a full-on zombie makeover after winning a Knott’s Scary Farm Halloween Haunt “Monster Makeover” contest.
His students said that, because they appreciated his teaching style so much, he deserved to be treated to a new look…which happened to be a zombie cowboy with open sore, blood oozing from his face. The future of the world is a bright one, indeed.
Jerry Paxton, Knott’s makeup artist, went to the campus to apply the zombie makeup treatment (rubberized glue and fake blood) to Smith, Principal Daniel Lunt and student Alissa Sallee, the senior who co-produced and submitted their video for the contest.
Paxton said that he gave them an extreme zombie make-up job or as he says, “the most advanced level of decay”.
It was in front of 2,300 students Thursday, during a homecoming assembly, that the 3 zombies ‘terrorized’ the school auditorium, bringing zombie awareness to the masses.
