Chillicothe City Schools will be hosting a public event November 6th, which uses the words of a diseased Columbine High School student to inspire students to rise above bullying behavior.
"Rachel's Challenge" returns to the area after being at Pickaway/Ross Career and Technology Center earlier in the fall. Rachel Scott was the first person to die in the 1999 Columbine mass shooting.
Lance Stoneking is middle school counselor for Chillicothe City Schools and says the diverse backgrounds students come from make it important that schools stress that just because a student is different, doesn't mean they can be a target for bullying.
The public event is at Chillicothe Middle/High School Auditorium November 6th is at 6pm.
Rachel Scott's writings prior to her death are the inspiration behind the Rachel's Challenge program.
