Senator Glick invites students to serve as pagers

 

Sen. Glick Encourages

Students to Serve as Pages

State Sen. Sue Glick (R-LaGrange) invites area middle school and high school students to spend a day at the Statehouse and serve as Senate pages during the 2013 legislative session, which runs from Jan. 7 to April 29.

“This program is an excellent opportunity for any student interested in politics or government,” Glick said. “Pages see the legislative process firsthand, even becoming a part of it by assisting senators and staff.”

Interested students should submit page requests as soon as possible by visiting http://www.in.gov/legislative/senate_republicans/6074.htm. Requests may also be emailed to Senator.Glick@iga.in.gov or by mail to the following address:

State Sen. Sue Glick

Indiana Senate

200 W. Washington St.

Indianapolis, IN 46204

All requests need to include the student’s name, address, home telephone number, age and school affiliation.

Friends wanting to page on the same day should send requests together. Glick said specific date requests will be considered, but may not be possible. The Senate’s page office will confirm the scheduled date after processing the incoming requests.

Participating as a page is an excused absence from school. Pages must arrive at the Statehouse by 8:30 a.m. to begin their orientation. They will then tour the historic Statehouse and observe legislative proceedings in committee rooms or the Senate Chamber.

Parents are responsible for pages’ transportation to and from the Statehouse, and pages should plan on bringing a lunch or money to buy a meal. Food can be purchased at the Government Center Cafeteria, Circle Centre Mall or one of the many downtown restaurants near the Statehouse.
