Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - The Academy at Shawnee is the newest high school to accept Rachel's Challenge right here in Kentuckiana!
Students filled the auditorium Thursday morning to hear Rachel Scott's message.
She was one of the victims at Columbine High School and since then her family has made it their mission to spread a message of caring and compassion and to stop bullying.
Many of the students had never heard of Rachel, but Sydney Rhodes said she read her book and looks forward to starting a chain reaction herself.
Students had a chance to sign a poster accepting the challenge.
The academy at Shawnee is also holding a community event Thursday at the school for parents and other community members.
If your school or business has accepted the challenge...we want to know about it.
