Graves Schools celebrates Rachel's Challenge

The Graves County School District early in the 2010-11 school year hosted Darrell Scott, father of Rachel Joy Scott, the first victim in the Columbine High School shootings. The journals she left behind spoke of her desire to change the world through empathy, kindness, and compassion. The year-long effort to emphasize those principles culminates for the district’s 4,500-plus students Monday, May 16.
