Teaching Sunday school was about as public as Beth Nimmo ever intended to be. But life rearranged her intentions. From a quiet, unassuming mother of five living a very ordinary life to a woman thrust into the media mayhem by events that tapped into every mother’s worst nightmare, Beth Nimmo’s life became public overnight, April 20, 1999. The mother of 17-year-old Rachel Joy Scott, the first victim killed at Columbine High School, Beth Nimmo has emerged from trauma and tragedy as an advocate for hope, healing and forgiveness. Resourceful, unassuming, remarkably poised under extraordinary stress, Beth Nimmo is a woman determined to embrace life in all of its goodness and all of its badness – because she believes the good outweighs the bad.
