Rachel's Challenge
set in WR Tuesday

Walnut Ridge School is bringing Rachel's Challenge, an anti-bullying program, to Walnut Ridge on Tuesday.

That evening at 6 there will be a special community presentation at the Walnut Ridge Community Center auditorium. The public is invited, and there is no charge to attend.

Rachel Joy Scott was the first victim in the Columbine school shooting on April 20, 1999. After her death, her family learned from her journal that she had a dream of spreading love and kindness to as many people as possible.

"The presentation is a powerful reminder of the little things we can do every day to make our world a better place," according to a promotional poster. The recommended audience is for sixth grade students and up.

"This is a powerful anti-bullying program," said Penny Sloan, Walnut Ridge Middle School counselor. She heard about the program this past summer at a National Association of Junior Auxiliary conference. Sloan serves as president of the Lawrence County Chapter of Junior Auxiliary.

The program will also be presented to Walnut Ridge middle school and high school students during the day. Sloan said Supt. Terry Belcher graciously consented to host the program in the school.

"I am very excited that our students and members of our community will have the opportunity to experience this program," Sloan said. "It is our hope that it will have a huge impact on them."
