Many Collinsville students and parents signed the banner to "accept" Rachel's Challenge.
CHS Counselor Dawn Martinez indicated the Collinsvile "chain reaction" from Rachel's Challenge actually started about 4 years ago when a group of CHS Student Council members attended a "Rachel's Challenge" presentation at Yukon HS. Those students started the effort to bring the presentation here but it took 4 years and support from the school, Education Foundation, plus community merchants and churches to finally make it happen.
Collinsville will have new organizations (at CHS & CMS) to carry on the Rachel's Challenge here locally. Check back for more information on those groups. The national contact information is at and on Facebook.
