Rachel's Challenge Chain Reaction
The Rachel's Challenge Chain Reaction Day at Barry University saw 75 students and 20 adults participate in a thought-provoking leadership seminar.  Participants were engaged from start to finish in a day created to take off the mask and reveal a true self in order to lead into the future.  Members of the FOR Club are now inviting anyone from the school to join the ranks and are actively working on projects to build unity, kindness, and compassion on campus.

This is just the beginning of a movement that will motivate our students to change the world...one student at a time. Thanks to the DCS community, the Miami Shores community, and all those who contributed to make this happen for our students.  Rachel Scott's legacy will live on at DCS.

Below, Anabelle Martelly, Valeria Rodriguez, and Alexandra Labella-Choo participate in a team-building activity.
