Program promotes kindness in school

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB) – Tuesday morning News 4 is shining our Student Spotlight on a program aimed to stop bullying in schools and promote kindness. “Rachel’s Challenge” was at at Niagara Falls High School Monday.

Fifth and sixth grade students filled the auditorium to hear the message of 17-year-old Rachel Scott. She was the first person killed in the Columbine shootings in 1999.

The presentation focused on Rachel, her life, and her legacy of making a difference in other people’s lives. By sharing Rachel’s stories organizers hope to promote kindness, tolerance and anti-bullying.

Rachel believed you could create a chain reaction by doing little things for other people. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
