A free moment is something that this week's Grand Valley Power Student of Week rarely gets, and Central High School Senior, Melody Maitland wouldn't have it any other way.
She is involved in city, county, and school government along with several other community service and leadership organizations.
Maitland says, "I don't think sitting on the couch is a choice or an answer to anything. I like to make decisions for local youth and be part of that and i just like to get things done how i like them done."
Maitland also works about 20 hours a week, so often her days are 14 hours long.
She plans to attend the University of Denver or Regis University this fall to study criminal justice or political science.
