OREM, Utah (AP) - A Utah high school student who was inspired by Parkland, Florida shooting survivors has started a community gun reform group after her attempts to start a school club were rejected by an adviser who said the club would have been too controversial.

The Salt Lake Tribune reported this week that 17-year-old Liz Romrell attends Timpanogos High School, located in the heart of conservative Utah County.

She formed the community group with encouragement from Parkland students who she met at a town hall.

Her group, Students Advocating for Safer Schools, has members from four campuses in the Orem area.

Last week, the Timpanogos principal gave Romrell the green light to form her group at their school.

She says decided she would rather continue working outside the school.
