Miss Goose Creek High, Taia Jackson is now a senior and is a former Boulder Bluff Elementary student.

She will campaign for Miss South Carolina State in January. She visited the elementary school to promote her work with the B.R.A.V.E. Campaign, which aims to combat bullying in schools.

Short for Building Respect, Acceptance and Voice through Education, the B.R.A.V.E. campaign aims to provide educators, parents, and students with the tools, knowledge, and support to be pro-active in confronting and stopping bullying.

JacksonĀ is working to become a positive role model within the Goose Creek community as she prepares to compete in the Miss South Carolina High School Pageant in January.

In this series of pictures, Jackson is shown with kindergarten and first-grade students at Boulder Bluff.
