State Sen. Sue Glick (R-LaGrange) welcomed Danielle and Austin Barr of Caroline Monroe High School as Senate pages in January.
During the 2012 session of the Indiana General Assembly, students throughout the state are invited to participate in the page program, making the Statehouse their classroom for the day. This experience includes a tour of the Capitol and an opportunity to be on the floor of the Senate chamber, where pages can meet their senators, hear floor debate and deliver important messages between senators and staff.
“The page program has played an important role at the Statehouse for decades,” Glick said. “Young students are given the opportunity to see how laws are created at the state level and experience how government operates on a day to day basis.”
Students in grades 6-12 are invited to serve as pages on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout session, Glick said. Wednesday – non-session days – are the Senate’s “Group Days.” Officials with the Senate Page Office say space is available for groups on Feb. 8, 15, and 22.
