A special program is scheduled for Thursday, September 4 starting at 7 p.m. in the Mount Logan Middle School. Principal Dr. Michael Monson says the program to be presented in the school auditorium is called <a href=”http://www.rachelschallenge.org/” target=”_blank”>Rachell’s Challenge</a> and it is about Rachel Scott, a student killed in the shootings at Columbine High School in 1999.
Monson says Rachel left a legacy of reaching out to those who were different, who were picked on by others, or who were new at her school. After her death, stories poured in from her peers about the impact she had on their lives.
Her family found essays and writing she had left and they have used those to create a foundation to promote caring and kindness. The title of Thursday’s program is Rise Above Bullying and Principal Monson says it will help us all make choices that promote a healthy community. The program is sponsored through the Utah State University Gear Up Grant and the Mount Logan Middle School.
