A group of high school students did the unexpected. 

The senior class at Profile Junior-Senior High School in Bethlehem, New Hampshire canceled their long-awaited class trip.

Instead, they donated the $8,000 they raised to their principal, Courtney Vashaw, who's battling synovial sarcoma, a rare form of soft-tissue cancer. 

On "America's Newsroom" today, Martha MacCallum spoke to Hunter Leighton and Chris Seely, two of the students who came up with the idea.

"The idea popped into our heads that instead of going on our senior trip, why not try and help a person that we love, Ms. Vashaw?" Leighton said. 

"Ms. Vashaw is a principal that really knows every single student, not just on an educational level, but at a very personal level as well," Seely added. "I think that's really why we felt so loving towards her and the decision was really made easy because of that."

Hunter said that they are hoping to raise more money for her cause with a fundraiser in the summer.
