A national program came to Washington last night thanks to a grant received at the Washington County Safe Coalition.  Todd Lauderdale with Rachel’s Challenge spoke to about 40 youth and adults last night at Hamakua Place.  During his message, he presented five challenges from the life of Rachel Scott, the first student killed at Columbine High School in 1999.

He adds other speakers associated with Rachel’s Challenge have shared these challenges to over sixteen million students in all 50 states as well as other countries around the world.

At the end of the presentation, the students in attendance were to sign a Rachel’s Challenge banner if they accepted the five challenges presented.  To find out more about Rachel’s Challenge, look at this link.
