IDAExpo 2018 Annual Meeting and Opening Session IDAExpo 2018 Tancil Horne Charity Recipient 160,000 STUDENTS SKIP SCHOOL EVERY DAY FOR FEAR OF BEING BULLIED. It doesn't have to be this way. For us it started when Rachel Joy Scott was the first person killed in the Columbine High School shooting on April 20, 1999. But that was only the beginning of the story. After her death, many students that Rachel reached out to shared stories with the Scotts about the profound impact her simple acts of kindness had on their lives; even preventing one young man for taking his own life. They soon realized the transformational effect of Rachel's story and started the non- profit organization that is Rachel's Challenge today. In the nineteen years since we lost twelve innocent lives, including Rachel, her legacy has touched 25 million people and is the foundation for creating programs that promote a positive climate in K-12 schools. Her vision to start a chain reaction of kindness and compassion is the basis for our mission: Making schools safer, more connected places where bullying and violence are replaced with kindness and respect; and where learning and teaching are awakened to their fullest. And it works! Special IDAExpo ® 2018 Photo Section - Las Vegas, Nevada See more photos at IDAExpoPhotos.com 38 International Door & Operator Industry™
