DHS hosting Rachel's Challenge community event Sept. 14
Dickinson High School is hosting a Rachel's Challenge community event "A Message of Kindness" from 6-7 p.m. Sept. 14 at the Dickinson High School Auditorium. The program, which is open to the public, is centered at reaching out to students, parents, businesses, and community members to create a more positive, friendly, pro-active environment within the community. Rachel's Challenge is being presented at DHS and several other Galveston County schools through a sponsorship by AMOCO Federal Credit Union, the Galveston County Sheriff's Department and BP Texas City.
Rachel Scott was the first student shot and killed at Columbine High School in 1999. Rachel kept a diary which outlined her ideas for a better world and her desire to make a difference through random acts of kindness. The Rachel's Challenge Program was formed by Rachel's family and has grown to a nationally recognized event. The program challenges students and community members to reach out to others to make the world a better place.
During Rachel's Challenge a powerful video will be shown, which combines scenes from the Columbine High School tragedy to Rachel's ideas for growth and what we can do as a community to make a difference.
DHS invites the Dickinson community to participate in Rachel's Challenge at the evening community event. Dickinson High School students will be seeing the program at assemblies during the school day of Sept. 14.
