The father of Rachel Scott, the first teen killed at Columbine High School in Colorado on April 20, 1999, will speak Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Hoover Middle School, 800 E. 26th St.
After his daughter’s death, Darrell Scott founded Rachel’s Challenge, a bullying and violence abatement program. He has spoken to a Congressional House Judiciary Committee, and met with Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. In 2005, Rachel’s Challenge was awarded the Friends of Education award from the state of New York.
Scott will also speak at a morning assembly for students at Hoover, and at a training for leadership seminar in the afternoon.
