Brown said other districts that have adopted the program have reported success. The Edmond district will incorporate the program into all its schools, elementary through high school, he said

“It's going to work best at the high school level even though it has been fabulous at the middle school, and honestly has a lot of elements that work at the elementary level as well,” Brown said.

Tiffani Bruton, spokeswoman for Cox, said the employee foundation was started in 2005 and typically spends $1,000 to $10,000 annually on local schools.

Edmond was chosen from 170 applicants, she said.

“It came down to a lot of discussion in what was the best, and Rachel's Challenge, in terms of impact — we are going to have the ability, through this program, to save lives,” she said.
