About Craig Scott
Craig Scott is a survivor of the Columbine High School shooting in 1999. He was in the most intense scene – the library - where 10 students were killed around him and two friends next to him underneath a table.  In a short time-gap, Craig escaped only to learn his sister, Rachel Joy Scott, was the first person killed.

Craig has since dedicated his life to making a difference in schools. Speaking to over a million people in over 20 years, his goal is to positively impacting school culture by sharing lessons behind Columbine and challenging students to value themselves and others. He has participated in over one thousand media interviews on shows such Oprah, the Today Show, Good Morning America and many others. He has been on Presidential panels on school safety and a speaker on mental health and emotional resiliency.  His story has helped to stop thousands of documented suicides as well as several school shootings.
