Columbine Hign School Educator

Kiki Leyba

Kiki Leyba was a first-year teacher at Columbine when the tragedy rocked a nation. The experience left him in a dark and unfathomable place. Trauma tested him at every level. In the midst of battling PTSD, Kiki Leyba – the teacher – mentored hundreds of students through the difficult years that followed.

This became a benchmark day in Leyba’s life: supporting others traumatized by school violence became a calling.

Retiring Campaign Board Member

Jackie Williams Kaye

A social scientist working in philanthropy, Jackie Williams Kaye became an advocate for more effective gun policies not because she had personally been affected by gun violence, but because she had not. Her children were in high school in 1999. She realized the events at Columbine could happen at their school. She remains an advocate because what happened at Sandy Hook could happen at PS 130 in Brooklyn, where she has a particular interest in the second grade and Pre K classrooms.
