Second Rachel's Challenge Rally Held In Denison

Posted:

DENISON, TX -- Hundreds of students took part in a rally designed to celebrate kindness and compassion.

Families packed into Munson Stadium for the second Rachel's Challenge rally on Friday, after last year's event was cancelled due to rain.

Students from the district's different schools stood on the field and parents watched from the stands.

"It's really a celebration of what students have done all year as far as practicing consciously making efforts to be kind to each other," says high school principal Cavin Boettger.

Rachel's Challenge is a nationwide effort named after a victim of the Columbine High School shooting.

Students have been encouraged to practice kindness in school, and one school has even been collecting donations to go to the victims of the West plant explosion.
