Region 8 students rewarded by taping principal to wall

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - One Region 8 school was challenged to raise money to purchase new books for their school, and they had a little bit of motivation to meet that goal.

Students at Concordia Christian Academy were challenged to raise $750. However, they went above and beyond by raising $1,100. Their motivation? Taping Principal Mindy Grubbs to the wall!

"They met their goal and surpassed it and so they get to tape me to the wall. They are very, very excited about it and I'm a little nervous because they're having ice cream too and I hope non of the ice cream gets to me," Grubbs said.
