For Immediate Release
March 1, 2000

Abilene Christian University in conjunction with Abilene Christian schools is bringing a parent of one of the victims who died in the Columbine High School shooting to speak in Moody Coliseum Monday, March 6, at 7 p.m. His presentation is free and open to the public

Darrell Scott's daughter, Rachel Scott, was shot after she confessed to believe in God. His son, Craig, survived the shootings but witnessed two of his friends being killed.

Scott will talk about violence in schools and the need for Christians to take a stand against it.

Scott spoke before the Subcommittee on Crime of the House Judiciary Committee on May 27.

"We have refused to honor God and in doing so open the doors to hatred and violence," Scott said in his speech. "We need a change of heart and a humble acknowledgement that this nation was founded on the principle of simple trust in God."

Scott is the featured speaker at Abilene Christian Schools' annual benefit dinner March 7.

Thirteen life-size crosses representing the students killed at Columbine High will be displayed when Scott speaks.
