CONCORD, N.C. -- When students at Central Cabarrus High School first learned of Rachel Scott's story last year, many were more than willing to take on the challenge.

"It's about going out of your way to be nice and to be kind and to give to others," said student Liz Robinson.

One way they're doing that is through the Friends of Rachel Club, and several committees they've since started.

"It started at school, but it's expanding to the rest of the community,” Robinson said.

That includes the Mayor of Midland.

"We actually have members of our community going to help teach the children how to crochet," said Midland Mayor Kathy Kitts.  "It's using art as kind of a vehicle to put Rachel's Challenge out into the community."

"Our plan is to crochet gloves, blankets, scarves and hats to give to people who are less fortunate and help them get through the winter," said student Samm Doorley.  "Most of them don't even know what crocheting is."

But that's what it's all about: learning something new and sharing the experience with others.
