Archer City, TX - A chance to make a difference in his community is something one Texas high school senior is getting the chance to do, but on a whole different level.

While most high school seniors are thinking about getting out of town for higher education, one teen is staying in his hometown in hopes of building a better community. 18 year old Kelvin Green is getting ready to be sworn in as the mayor of Archer City, Texas.

his community has never had a mayor this young since it's founding back in 1888. Green won by default since no one else ran against him, but the city is backing him and are supportive of the aspiring teen who says it's more or less a childhood dream.

One of Green's first issues he will get to take on in his new role is addressing the town's water needs as they are in a stage 4 drought. Kelvin is sworn in today at 9 am and following that ceremony, he is taking on another role of as a high school athlete and preparing for a run at a state baseball title.
