Garrett County Public Schools is sponsoring a community event entitled Rachel’s Challenge. Rachel Joy Scott was the first victim in the Columbine High School massacre. While her life was tragically cut short during the shooting on April 20, 1999, her shining example of kindness and compassion was not defeated that day. Come hear the inspiring true story of one girl’s dream being fulfilled over a decade after her death. The presentation is a powerful reminder of the little things we can do every day to make our world a better place. Come hear “The Story That Changes Everything”.
