Steckel Walton works for the Russell County Sheriff's Office and is a volunteer firefighter for the City of Russell Fire Department. She also is a part of the Russell County Relay for Life and volunteers at the Dream Theater.

Part of her nomination letter stated, "When she is not serving Russell County in a professional and friendly manner, she is a single mother of three girls. I feel she gives so much to our community not only as a parent, a loyal Sheriff's office employee and firefighter, but as a friend to all she comes in contact with. She treats everyone with a modicum of empathy and truly cares about doing a good job in all she does."
