If your children go to Mentor Schools, there's a good chance that they already know what Rachel's Challenge is.
But now you can see it for yourself.
Rachel's challenge is named after Rachel Scott, the first person murdered during the Columbine High School shootings.
Rachel left behind a diary in which she wrote about her desire to "create a chain reaction of kindness."
Now her family and several other speakers travel across the United States and other countries sharing Rachel's story through the Rachel's Challenge nonprofit organization.
Her uncle spoke with students from the Mentor middle schools last year. (See video from the visit here.)
Earlier this week, Rachel's Challenge returned to Mentor to talk to sophomores and juniors at Mentor High School.
During each talk, the speaker discussed Rachel's philosophy, which boils down to five tenets:
- Look for the best in others
- Dream big and write your goals
- Choose positive influences
- Speak with kindness to others
- Start your own chain reaction of kindness
Now, people from the community can see a presentation on Rachel's Challenge 7 p.m. tonight at the Mentor Fine Arts Center.
