This isn't just another extracurricular activity. Brandon Van Bibber will soon have a say in how more than half a billion dollars is spent, where schools should be built and who Anne Arundel County's next superintendent will be. Van Bibber is 17, about to be a senior at Glen Burnie High School.

The 17-year-old was elected to the post on a second ballot by middle and high school delegates to the Chesapeake Regional Association of Student Councils (CRASC). The first vote on the four-candidate slate failed to yield a majority. Van Bibber battled it out in the second ballot against Jeremy Horine, a junior at Broadneck High School.
