Messages that resonate

Todd Lauderdale of Rachel’s Challenge.

The campaign to eliminate the bullying problem among youth at Fort Irwin has resulted in recent visits by individuals with messages that are very relevant.

On Feb. 12, Todd Lauderdale of the Rachel’s Challenge organization visited the installation and spoke to an audience of Fort Irwin community members. Lauderdale is a family friend of Rachel Scott’s family and a speaker for the organization. Rachel Scott was the first person killed in the Columbine High School tragedy on April 20, 1999. Lauderdale visits schools all over the country to tell the story of Rachel’s life and writings. By sharing Rachel’s acts of kindness during her life, the Rachel’s Challenge program helps to inspire individuals to replace acts of violence, bullying and negativity with acts of respect and compassion.
