CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Two area students are taking the message of Rachel's Challenge to the next level.

They made their own video talking about the importance of spreading kindness, and it’s making a big impact at Charlotte Catholic High School.

"I don't think anyone realized just how impacting it could be," said student Stuart Dickinson.

"There was a kid sitting by himself," noted student Emma Winters.  "We just invited him to sit with us because we didn't want him to be by himself."

Rachel Scott was a victim of the Columbine High School shooting.

The program Rachel's Challenge was founded in her memory and is going on in schools in Burke, Cabarrus, Cleveland, Lancaster, Mecklenburg and York counties.

The challenge has been met across the school, students say.
 
"I think everyone just genuinely all around is just being more kind to each other," said Jack Brodowicz.
