Valerie Walker is involved in student government at her high school, but says she wanted to do more.
Walker says she has a lot of ideas and wants to put those to good use as a student member of the school board.
Administrators say Walker has the initiative and motivation to get the job done.
Valerie Walker said, "I think that I'll be able to add a lot of positive input that encompasses all the students' ideas, not just what I think or the people at Godby. I like to get everybody's opinions and just make sure it's a universal kind of thing."
Walker is also involved in creating a summer safety initiative at her high school. The program will discuss issue like drunk driving and rape.
