Rachel's challenge comes to albany

A new curriculum for a slain student, of the Columbine massacre was presented in Albany. The  corporate breakfast was sponsored by Phoebe Putney Hospital.

Rachel Scott was the first of 13 people killed at Colorado's Columbine High School in 1999.

Dozen of years later, her father Darrell Scott, has taken her diaries, and acts of kindness to millions of students nationwide.

Albany civic and business leaders were in tears after hearing  her life-changing story. This was all a part of Phoebe Putney's Centennial Celebration.

"Parents and students hear the story in two different ways. It always makes me feel grateful that Rachel's life continues. Some parents lose a child and don't get to see the difference they made," said President of "Rachel's Challenge" Darrell Scott.

Her brother's Craig and Mike Scott will return in August, to introduce the program for students in this area.
