Lyon students attend West Magnet College Day

Lyon students attend West Magnet College Day

BATESVILLE, Ark. – For Brandi Allen and her kindergarten son, Rhys, College Day at West Magnet Elementary did not seem right without real college students.

The school’s Red Ribbon Week for awareness of drug-free living included special themed dress-up days during the week. On College Day, Rhys brought his Scots sword and wished he could hang out with some Lyon football players.

Her son’s wish gave Allen an idea. She contacted his teacher and some Lyon students and coordinated a visit to the classroom. These students celebrated College Day by reading stories to all of the kindergarten classes. Jennifer Keys, Bethany Butler, Becca Burrow, and Kristen Blagg represented the Phi Mu sorority among the student volunteers. Scots football players Jon Alexander and Jordy Wyble also volunteered, as well as APPLE Project Upward Bound staff members Jeanette Youngblood, Cory Godbolt, and Allen herself.

Jefferson Co. Sheriff's Office issues reminder to parents on child identification

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ark. - (Oct. 29, 2015 – With recent flash news alerts regarding missing children, teens, and others alike throughout the state, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office decided to issue a reminder to all parents regarding the indentification of their children. 

Major Lafayette Woods, Jr. issued the following statement on Thursday:

When a child or someone you know is reported missing, emotions become raw, which can hinder the ability of parents or love ones to make rational decisions. Yet, their actions and the actions of law enforcement in the first 48 hours are critical to the safe recovery of a missing. Knowing what you can do, what others can do, and where to go for help will not only expedite the search and recovery of your child or love one, it also will help to ease the emotional and financial burden of the search.
