Top Teen--Brittany Butler

Brittany Butler Brittany Butler

Summer vacation's usually a time to get a little rest and relaxation. But we found a young lady doing just the opposite. While most of the kids at Savannah's Boys and Girls Club are busy playing, Brittany Butler is busy working.

"I do the front desk and the copy machine," she said.

This 15-year-old is spending her summer serving as an assistant to membership clerk Kenya Baker. "Brittany is a very sweet young lady," Baker told us. "She's been a big help to me all summer."

When she isn't answering phones, making copies or filing, she's keeping employees on track. "I have to make sure they all clock in on time."

And she does it not because she has to but because she wants to. And she does it all with a smile on her face.

"She's not the type to just walk past and not speak to you," said Baker. "Like today, she walked up to me and said 'How was your weekend?' You know. She cares about others."

And she plans do to the same thing next summer. That's why Brittany Butler is this week's WTOC Top Teen.

Brittney is a sophomore at Savannah High School. After she graduates she wants to go to nursing school.

If you'd like to nominate a Top Teen, you can drop us a line at the station: PO Box 8086, Savannah, GA 31412, or email topteen@wtoc.com.
