Jared Small wore a beret to school one day when he was in the second grade.
“It was one of my mom’s hats,” he said. “I formed it into a beret. It was one of those things — career day — when you come dressed as your future profession. You had to get on stage and tell what you wanted to do, what your inspiration was. So I dressed up as an artist. I had a beret and a little mini lab coat.”
