    This sixty-minute program is the inspiring story of Rachel Scott whose example of kindness and acceptance was brought to light when she became the first victim of the Columbine High School tragedy. Conveyed through stories from Rachel's life and writings, the Rachel's Challenge presentation shows the profound positive impact we can have on those around us. It demonstrates to the listener the power of deliberately reaching out in word and action to others to start what Rachel called "a chain reaction of kindness and compassion."
    Speaker: Darrell Scott, author and founder of Rachel’s Challenge, an organization that focuses on creating a culture of kindness to combat bullying, based on the writings of his daughter Rachel, who died during the Columbine High School shooting in 1999.
