Former Parkers Chapel Student Wins Miss Arkansas

Her name is Amy Crain and she attended PC as an adolescent. I went there myself and was a year younger than her and I can tell you that she's a great person to represent Arkansas and a great pageant contestant. It is time we win. The Miss Arkansas pageant girls are always fantastic and overlooked. My Aunt says a girl with the last name of Davidson should've won back in the day and got robbed and it was a big scandal because she won swimsuit competition in the preliminaries but they were dumb enough to allow a peer vote and so duh all the girls voted against her. Anyway, I am rooting for Crain and Arkansas and hope to see her win.
I really respect her platform of anti-bullying and I hate it that she alluded in her interviews that was bullied at PC. That's horrible. Bullying is an epidemic in this country. Though to be honest I remember people really liking her. She was popular. All I knew of was one girl that didn't like her because she believed Amy had a thing for the her boyfriend so the girl was a biatch to her a bit and hit her or something. That is a horrible thing and I hate it happened to her but I wouldn't change schools because of it. But I'm not her and whatever the incident was had a profound effect on her and I'm glad she will talk about the issue and represent Arkansas excellently!

Bullying is not an epidemic. It's a laziness by parents, and a fear by teachers, to teach kids how to become self-sufficient and assertive.

Fyi-her claiming to be "bullied" is a ploy (fabrication, if you will). Just like being gay is the new black. To her credit, all contestants have to have a "platform" for it to be considered a scholarship program.

Personally, I witnessed her being bullied. She was tormented and she overcame being bullied and is now reaching out to others to help them, not just a "ploy". She experienced this first hand! I was there so I have so much respect for this girl. She is a wonderful role model and has worked hard for everything she has accomplished.

Who was the one doing the bullying? There are some bullies in PC. Sometimes the whole family is a bully. They start something with someone and then when someone steps in and stops it, they claim to be a victim. Some of these bullies are mentally ill. They go on to bigger crimes.

What did the big bad bullies do? Shove her into lockers or make her eat dirt? Or was it friends by association who would start rumors over jealousy (which I'm sure was taken by hovering in a corner and crying). She is a great role model and has worked hard to accomplish what she has, but this so-called bullying EPIDEMIC? is more bullshit than anything else.
