Katie Buck is a Senior at Amador Valley High School in Pleasanton, CA. She is the tuba section leader for the school’s marching band, which is ranked 5th on the west coast. She is also part of the jazz band, and was selected for the Competition Civics team. The focus of her summer internship with the Go Green Initiative is to study the humane treatment of livestock animals, and learning about eco-friendly, organic diets. Katie has literally grown up “green”, as the eldest of three children of the founder of the Go Green Initiative, Jill Buck. She has accompanied her mom on business trips and speaking engagements around the country, and has toured landfills, recycled paper mills, and many other ‘green’ facilities with her family. Katie believes that students her age can take leadership positions in their community to help create a more sustainable way of life.
