Region 8 backpack program benefits from wager

MCCRORY, AR (KAIT) - The McCrory School District's backpack program recently received a donation thanks to a friendly bet.

State Representative Michael John Gray and Dorothy Hall, who is running for Arkansas State Representative in District 10, which includes Rison, made a wager before last month's Class 2A State Championship football game.

The loser of the bet agreed to donate to the charitable organization of the winner's choice.

The McCrory Jaguars beat the Rison Wildcats 26 to 22 in the championship game.

Representative Gray chose the backpack program for Hall to donate to.

Several members of the championship team along with McCrory High School Principal Aaron Wiggins accepted the donation Tuesday.
