SGMS Student Praised by Governor Nikki Haley

ST. GEORGE, S.C. (WCIV) -- St. George Middle School student De'Shaun Booker saw a problem in his community and,
instead of complaining about it, he did something about it.
On Thursday Haley, surrounded by law enforcement officers, visited Booker's school and introduced Booker as her "newest best friend." She also introduced new programs -- Lunch Buddies and Donuts with Officers -- that were a direct result of the letter.The seventh grader wrote a letter to Gov. Nikki Haley in April suggesting the state do something to strengthen the relationship between law enforcement officers and youth in the community.
"De'Shaun did something that a lot of adults don't always realize," Haley said while Booker stood next to her wearing an honorary Highway Patrol uniform. "De'Shaun didn't complain about it, he did something about it. He saw a wrong and -- instead of going and complaining to everybody, which is a waste of energy -- he wrote me a letter.
Haley told the students they can also make South Carolina a better place."And when he wrote me that letter I called him and I asked him
to come and meet with me. Just because he wrote me that letter, just because he knew the power of his voice, just because he used it, he made South Carolina a better place."
