Miss Arkansas speaks to Region 8 students

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Miss Arkansas made a special trip to Jonesboro High School to spread an important message.

Amy Crain was the keynote speaker at the District 3 Future Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) Leadership Conference. Students from schools all over Region 8 listened to her speak about the seriousness of bullying and the possible jail time offenders face if convicted of cyber bullying.

Kaitlyn Hale, a junior at Riverside High School was at the event and learned from what Miss Arkansas said. "You need to learn these things at a young age," Hale said. "When you're older maybe there's not so much bullying occurring, but while you're in school there's so much competition between people and people do get jealous."

Miss Arkansas also performed her talent for students while she was there.
