The Miss Ohio Scholarship Program announced today that Elissa McCracken was crowned Miss Ohio 2012 at the Renaissance Theatre in Mansfield, Ohio. A Ohio Northern University pharmacy student, her platform as Miss Ohio is to stop cyber bullying. She has been a victim of it, she said. “It was a devastating experience for me,” she said. “Now, I’m able to share my story on how I was able to overcome the experience and emotions I was feeling to help others going through the same thing.” As Miss Ohio, McCracken hopes to reach a larger audience with the three-step method that she said is vital to overcoming cyber bullying – stop, block and tell. Stop communicating with the bully, block the person from communicating with you and tell an adult.
