Columbine survivor to speak at Niagara Falls HS
Speaker Craig Scott survived; his sister was killed in the shooting
WHAT: Niagara Falls High School is honored to host Craig Scott, a survivor of the Columbine school shooting. Craig will be speaking at Niagara Falls High School and the public is invited and encouraged to attend (general public only invited to the EVENING 7:00 p.m. presentation). This event is FREE.
Craig's sister Rachel was killed in the Columbine massacre; Craig was in the library and survived the shooting by pretending to be dead and lying next to two students who had already been killed.
Rachel is the inspiration for Rachel’s Challenge, an international school outreach program and the most popular school assembly program in the U.S. Its aim is to advocate Rachel's values, based on her life, her journals, a two-page essay, and a code of ethics she wrote one month before she was murdered. Rachel’s Challenge advocates her belief in compassion being "the greatest form of love humans have to offer."
