LITTLE ROCK, AR - This morning Kevin Kelly and Miss Arkansas Amy Crain talked to elementary school students at Little Rock's Central Arkansas Christian campus. Both shared their own experiences with bullying, and led them in the step up, stop bullying pledge. The school's principal Shelia Cruce told Kevin she was glad to pass the message along this way.

"They need to understand that everyone is aware of this, that our society does not want this to happen, that it is wrong, and that we're trying to affect change in that. And to see Miss Arkansas stand up and talk about that and to hear you a television personality discuss that and be passionate about that also is important for them," says Cruce.

This was a great opportunity for Kevin and the students. Each student who signed the Step Up Stop Bullying Pledge got a backpack tag saying they'd signed it.
