YORKTOWN -- Members of the Tabb High School Naval Junior ROTC are used to looking out for each other.

Now, they're looking out for other students by embracing Rachel's Challenge, a program named for Rachel Scott, who was killed in the Columbine massacre.

Tabb cadets and students join more than two million others across the country, vowing to work to make the world a better place by engaging in random acts of kindness.

"We can use our three core values to help us with Rachel's Challenge. In the Navy, we have honor, courage and commitment and that goes along with a lot of what Rachel had in mind," said one student.

Jennifer Barber is president of Rachel's Challenge at Tabb High School.

"Our job is to stay very active, not just talk about what we're going to be doing but to act on it, just to help out in any way when someone is doing a wrong -- to counteract that and correct it," she said.

Barber says the students really want to make a difference.
