Edmond anti-bullying program 1/9

Students signed their names to two large banners. The Edmond School District and the Edmond Public Schools Foundation are partnering to bring Rachel's Challenge to every middle school in the district as a result, in part, from a grant from a foundation donor. Students at Cheyenne Middle School watched a video presentation explaining the challenge and then were invited to sign their name to a banner, signaling their intent to accept Rachel's Pledge on Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2012. Rachel's Challenge is based on the life and writings of Rachel Scott, who was the first person killed during the Columbine High School massacre in 1999. Her challenge is for individuals to make a permanent and positive change in their schools and community by starting a chain reaction of kindness and compassion. Photo by Jim Beckel
