Changes to School Immunization Requirements Effective 2014-15 School Year

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (ADH) – Children who will be 11 years of age or older on or before September 1 of each school year will be required to receive a Tdap shot in order to attend public or private school in Arkansas. This new requirement is anticipated to be effective September 1, 2014. Previously a Tdap shot was required for students entering Grade 7. Only one Tdap is required, so children who have already received the shot will not need another. Students who will be 11 years old on or before September 1 will have until October 1 to meet this new shot requirement.

A Place to Call Home: Sierra

A Place to Call Home: Sierra

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Time and again, we've shared with you stories of abandoned, abused, and neglected children, left behind for the state to care for.

Through THV11's partnership with the Arkansas Department of Human Services, our effort is to help find these children forever homes.

In the case of a 17-year-old, life comes full circle in this story, except one thing is missing: a family to call her own.

"I thought they were precious," Sierra said with a smile at the Humane Society of Pulaski County.

Their innocent yips for attention, along with their sweet puppy eyes, was all enough to melt the 17-year-old's heart

A pup named Franklin and a kitten named Vida have Sierra's full attention. This is the only place she wants to be.

"I really love horses, cats, dogs, all of the above," Sierra told us.

UCA men wear high heels to raise sexual violence awareness

CONWAY, Ark. (UCA) – Male students, faculty and staff will sport women’s high heel shoes to raise awareness about sexual violence.

UCA men, as well as female supporters, will be participating in a Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® event on Thursday, April 3, 2014 at 1:40 p.m. Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® is the international men’s march to stop rape, sexual assault and gender violence.

The end of sexual assault and gender violence starts with awareness and Walk a Mile is one of the best ways to raise awareness in the Central Arkansas region,” said Scott Isenga, director of fraternity life.  “The event is important because it puts our UCA fraternity men creatively at the forefront, literally, of these issues on our campus.“
