On September 28, 2016, an eighth grader armed with a semi-automatic handgun and a plan to kill people on campus went to the counseling department at Sycamore Middle School in Pleasant View, Tennessee, to find his school counselor. After ninety minutes of talking with the young man and praying beside him on her knees, the counselor was able to convince him to relinquish the weapon to her with no shots fired and no lives lost. For her efforts, she became a recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor's Citizens Honor for a single act of heroism. In her twenty-fifth year in education, she remains the school counselor at Sycamore Middle School and is joining us here today to share her story of "The School Shooting that Never Happened." Please welcome, school counselor Molly Hudgens.
