Rachel's Challenge at H-F
On Thursday, Jan. 26, Homewood-Flossmoor High School will welcome a representative from Rachel's Challenge to give presentations to students during the day and the general public and parents during the evening. The Littleton, Colo.-based Rachel's Challenge is the organization created by the family of Rachel Scott — the first student killed at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999 — that strives to inspire, equip and empower people to create a permanent culture change in schools, businesses and communities by starting a chain reaction of kindness and compassion, according to the organization's website.
The school's junior and senior classes will enjoy a presentation at 8 a.m. that day, then at 7 p.m. the presentation will be open to parents and the general public at the school's Mall Auditorium.
According to John Schwaller, H-F's student assistance coordinator, the presentation will focus on Columbine, Rachel's life and the five goals of Rachel's Challenge. They are to eliminate prejudice, to dare to dream, to choose your influences, to use kind words and to start a chain reaction of kindness. The presenter is a former professional and Texas Tech University football player, who has been speaking on behalf of Rachel’s Challenge since 2007.
