Shelton School Supt. Freeman Burr is man of his word, and he’s poured a bucket of ice and cold water on his head to prove it.

Burr has released a video of himself taking the Ice Bucket Challenge to benefit the ALS Foundation. He was responding to a challenge from Derby School Supt. Matthew Conway by participating in the charity activity. Burr and Conway used to work together as educators in Hartford.

Many Shelton public school employees are expected to join Burr soon, by also taking the Ice Bucket Challenge during an event Friday at Shelton High School.
