The BVT Friends of Rachel Club was formed by a group of students who were inspired by a Rachel’s Challenge program presentation made during the 2010-11 school year. The program is named after Rachel Scott, who was the first person killed during the horrific massacre at Columbine High School in 1999. Her acts of kindness and compassion coupled with the contents of her personal diaries have become the foundation for the life-changing program which has had a profound effect on Valley Tech students. The Friends of Rachel Club formed as a means for the students to perpetuate the program’s positive message by practicing random acts of kindness.
