Local student serves as page

Paige Henry of Westfield High School recently served as an Indiana House Page during the 2012 session of the Indiana General Assembly. The Indiana House of Representatives offers an unparalleled opportunity for students between the ages of 13 and 18 to visit the Statehouse and experience a full day of legislative activity.

Pages are able to see how the state legislature works firsthand in a behind-the-scenes tour. They will get to work alongside legislators, legislative assistants and interns. On session days, pages experience how a bill becomes a law as they watch legislators on the House floor debate issues. Students also have the chance to tour the statehouse, see where the Governor works and observe floor sessions of the House, Senate and Supreme Court chambers.

The Indiana House Page Program is an educational way for students to gain a better understanding of the lawmaking process by meeting their State Representative and witnessing how laws are made firsthand. It is an exciting experience that comes highly recommended. Please feel free to call 317-234-9042 with further questions.
