Rachel's Challenge

On the back of Rachel's furniture, she traced her hand and wrote the following:

"These hands belong to Rachel Joy Scott and will some day touch millions of people's hearts."

I have this theory that if one person can go out of their way to show compassion then it will start a chain reaction of the same. - Rachel Scott

    Rachel Scott was the first person killed at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999. Her acts of kindness and compassion coupled with the contents of her six diaries have become the foundation for one of the most life-changing school programs in America.
    On January 15, 2009, 7th and 8th grade student will participate in this school assembly. It is about Rachel's life and the Columbine tragedy  that holds students spell-bound during a one hour school presentation that motivates them to positively change the way they treat others.
    That evening at 6:30pm in the middle school auditorium the Rachel’s Challenge speaker will conduct a powerful session with parents and community leaders. This session is similar to the assembly program and ends with a specific challenge to parents and community leaders, showing them how they can reinforce the decisions their youth are making.
