Students were silent as Jimmy Brayden began talking about Rachel Scott and showing videos of the day Rachel died.
Rachel Scott was the first student killed at Columbine School in 1999.
Rachel's Challenge is a non-profit organization, to perpetuate Rachel’s example and the two-page "Code of Ethics" she wrote a month before her death.
Its mission statement is to "motivate, educate and bring positive change to many young people".
The Rachel’s Challenge presentations are given in schools and communities by members of her family and other speakers, using video footage of the Columbine High School massacre and its aftermath, combined with Scott’s drawings and writings, in a campaign to quell school violence, bullying, and teen suicide.
The Rachel's Challenge program includes establishing Friends of Rachel clubs in schools following the initial presentation, to sustain the campaign's goals on a long-term basis.
Red Springs Middle School students accepted the challenge by signing the banner hanging outside the school cafeteria.
