Jefra Bland Hines, a former "Survivor" contestant from Campbellsville, spoke to Campbellsville Elementary School third-grade students recently, encouraging them to do their best on upcoming state standardized tests.



This year's testing theme at "CES is Survivor: Out Study, Out Score, Out Perform."

To help students be motivated to do their best on the tests, Hines spoke about how she competed on the reality competition "Survivor," and never gave up, even though she was left on an island with very little to help her survive.

Hines said students need to work together as a tribe - like on "Survivor" - to motive each other.

She said students should be proactive and prepare for the test by getting lots of rest and eating a healthy breakfast.
