Parents and students in Page County came together Monday night to tackle bullying.

They learned new ways to do this through the story of one of the victims of the Columbine High School shooting.

The presentation showed a video recapping the shooting that killed more than a dozen people in Colorado.

One of the victims was Rachel Scott. The presentation told her story and featured an essay that she wrote just days before she was killed.

Rachel wrote that if people are kind to each other, that will create a chain reaction of kindness.

Monday night's presenter says the group 'Rachel's Challenge' tries to spread this message to schools across the country.

"Rachel gives us the power, or empowers us that we can be nice and kind and compassionate to someone else, and by doing so, that small act, we can uplift our school, the community and ultimately the world," said Torski Dobson-Arnold, the presenter.

Hundreds of students in Page County got to see this presentation during school earlier in the day.
