Students challenged to be kind in all they do
Four Tulare County middle schools participate in Rachel's Challenge assemblies
At school assemblies during October, Tom Isaacson spoke of the tragic 1999 Columbine High School shooting and the first victim – Rachel Scott. Cadets at La Sierra Military Academy (LSMA) were absolutely captivated; many were moved to tears. Mr. Isaacson is a member of the Rachel’s Challenge organization and a personal friend of Rachel’s brother Craig – a Columbine student who survived the shooting. Rachel’s Challenge was formed by members of the Scott family following the tragedy. The story of Rachel’s kind and compassionate acts, coupled with the contents of her six diaries, are the basis of the life-changing school program.
