DEFUSING VIOLENCE

Glendale High School students participated in Rachel’s Challenge, an anti-violence program started by the parents of Rachel Scott, the first death in the Columbine school shooting outside Denver in 1999.

Students watched a video that combines Rachel’s life with footage from the horrific day at Columbine High School when 12 students and one teacher were shot to death by two students.

Organizers said the presentation is meant to encourage acts of kindness. After the video, a 45-minute session with adult and student leaders discussed ways to sustain the lessons of Rachel’s legacy.

Rachel’s Challenge was presented at Hoover High School on Tuesday.
