A pair of Hoquiam girl scouts spent their summer working odd jobs to bring a nationwide program on bullying to their middle school. Eight graders Thyme and Linzey raised $2,000 over the summer, and with a match from Hoquiam School District they announced at last night’s city council meeting; “Rachel’s Challenge will be coming to our school on February 13th, and we wanted to invite the community to a community event [they] will be holding at the school at 6:30 that same night.”

Rachel Scott was the first student killed at Columbine High School in 1999, her dad and step mother turned her legacy of reaching out to those who were different into a challenge to others to do just that.
