TEMPLE, Ga. -- The students of Temple Middle School have accepted Rachel Joy Scott's challenge to improve their school and community through acts of kindness and compassion.
It is just the latest of many Georgia schools to join Rachel's Challenge, a nationwide movement named for the first victim of the Columbine High School massacre.
Temple Middle's theme is "Let's Start a Chain Reaction," according to principal Gail Parmer.
"We would like for this theme to transition into our community through demonstrating a caring and nurturing spirit," she said.
Rachel Scott was only 17 years old when she was shot to death on Apr. 20, 1999.
