Accepting ‘Rachel's Challenge’

Hudson – Hudson High School students sign a banner as a pledge to accept the challenge after viewing "Rachel's Challenge," a multi-media presentation inspired by the writings of Rachel Scott, the first victim of the 1999 fatal shootings at Columbine High School in Colorado.

Students learned that the challenge consisted of five steps: (1) Look for the best in others and eliminate prejudice; (2) Dare to dream, write goals, and keep a journal; (3) Choose positive influences; (4) Kind words and little acts of kindness can bring huge results; and (5) Start a chain reaction by telling the people important to you how much you love them.

In addition to the daytime presentation to students Oct. 23, the program was offered to adults in the community that evening.
