Nancy B. is a hero because she helped inspire three miles of kindness!
Nancy has served public schools for 44 years in North Texas. As Director of Guidance for Rockwall, TX, she was instrumental in the creation and implementation of the Rachel's Challenge program at every level in Rockwall.
Her passion for the kindness and compassion initiative led to the first K-12 program of its kind in the nation. She spear headed the first every Elementary School program last year and helped organized a year end celebration called 'Rachel's Rally.' Over 10,000 students, parents and community leaders were in attendance, to celebrate the many acts of kindness performed in the community.
She encouraged students, teachers, parents, and community leaders to accept Rachel Joy Scott's challenge to 'start a chain reaction of kindness and compassion.' Through that challenge, she helped to inspire students and adults to perform kind and compassionate acts throughout their homes and communities in Rockwall, TX. At Rachel's Rally, there were a total of 123,000 reported acts of kindness represented as chain links that measured a total of 3 miles. Way to go Nancy, that's a lot of kindness!!
