DENVER -- One of the things we learned about Rachel Scott after she died in the shooting at Columbine is how she would often ask students sitting by themselves to join her for lunch.
Now, a California teen has created an app to encourage others to do the same thing.
Sixteen-year-old Natalie Hampton's Sit With Us app was being used in schools around the world within a month of its launch.
It encourages students to be ambassadors in their school lunchrooms and invite other kids to sit at a group table.
The goal: to keep kids from sitting alone just because they don’t fit a certain label.
“They don't have to feel like they have to sit by themselves,” Natalie told ABC’s David Muir. “There is always someone there they can sit with.”
Denver7 is a proud partner of Rachel’s Challenge.
