The story of a young woman whose acts of kindness provided the inspiration for a national anti-bullying campaign will be told in a public setting in Cheyenne on Thursday.
The story of Rachel Joy Scott, the inspiration for the nationwide “Rachel’s Challenge” movement, will be told from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday at Goins Elementary School.
Scott was the first student killed in the Columbine High School shootings of 1999. Students who shared their stories of Rachel with her parents painted a picture of a young woman whose acts of kindness had a profound effect on them.
The resulting “Rachel’s Challenge” program is designed to create a positive climate in public schools and reduce bullying.
The program is open to the public and refreshments will be served. People planning to attend are asked to RSVP to Goins Principal Amanda Hall at 771-2620 or by email at email@example.com.
