TULSA — Monday was a snow day for most Tulsa-area students, but it was much more memorable for the children who braved the ice and frigid temperatures to attend classes at Dove School of Discovery.

"She is, like, the first lady, and I was like, 'whoa,'" said sixth-grader Triston Vasquez, 13.

Melania Trump brought her "Be Best" initiative to Discovery to promote children's well-being and speak out against cyberbullying and opioid abuse. It was her first stop on a planned three-state tour that will take her next to Seattle and Las Vegas.
