East Rowan High School student Caitlin Garret will give a PowerPoint presentation on Rachel’s Challenge (an anti-bullying program) at the Rowan County Republican Party meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug 12.
Rachel’s Challenge is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to creating safe, connected school environments where learning and teaching are maximized.
Based on the life and writing of Rachel Scott, the first victim of the Columbine tragedy in 1999, Rachel’s Challenge provides a continual improvement process for schools designed to awaken the learner in every child. It seeks to motivate and equip students to start and sustain a chain reaction of kindness and compassion that can transform schools and communities.
