Craig Scott, the brother of Rachel Joy Scott who was the first victim of the Columbine (Colorado) School shooting, will be featured in an Education Solutions Global Network (ESGN) broadcast on Thursday, August 14, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. Mr. Scott’s presentation, sponsored by the Children’s Trust Fund (CTF), will air live from the Second Annual Conference on Coordinated School and College Safety and Security in Branson. The conference, scheduled for August 14-15, is produced each year by the Missouri School Boards’ Association (MSBA).
To access the broadcast, viewers should visit the MSBA website and ‘click’ on ‘Watch Live Broadcast from Safety Conference.’ There will be no charge to viewers for the Internet broadcast and the presentation is appropriate for any person interested in reducing incidents of violence and abuse toward children and youth.
Craig Scott makes frequent public speaking appearances including at the White House Conference on School Safety in 2006. He is periodically interviewed on various television programs that have included 20/20, Dateline NBC, and the Today Show to discuss the loss of his sister and his difficult recovery from the traumatic ordeal he experienced as an eyewitness to the murderous rampage.
The Columbine High School massacre took place in April 1999, claiming the lives of twelve students and a teacher (along with two perpetrators), and is one of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history. Scott will use the life of his sister and the experience of Columbine to detail how kindness and compassion toward others can be an effective antidote to anger and hatred—elements that often result in violent acts toward children and others.
