Twenty-two years ago, two students, armed with shotguns, rifles and bombs, entered Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, and murdered 12 students and one teacher before taking their own lives.
Craig Scott was there on April 20, 1999, as was his sister, Rachel Joy, who was the first student killed. Her story was told in the 2016 movie, “I’m Not Ashamed.”
Scott is scheduled to speak in Anchorage about his personal experience of witnessing the deaths of close friends and peers inside the school library, as well as the aftermath of that tragic day. His presentation will be Aug. 12, 6 p.m., at Changepoint Church.
