State Sen. Luke Kenley (R-Noblesville) announced Dec. 28 the Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for its page program.
This full-day, interactive program gives students in grades six through 12 the opportunity to tour the Indiana Statehouse, observe session debates on the Senate floor and assist staff with age-appropriate tasks. Students will also meet with their state senator.
“Serving as a Senate page gives students a chance to see state government up close,” Kenley stated in a press release. “I hope students in Senate District 20 will take advantage of this opportunity to learn about public service.”
The 2017 Senate Page Program will run from Jan. 23 through mid-April. Positions fill quickly, so it is important to sign up early. Pages are scheduled for Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays during the legislative session, starting at 8:30 a.m. and dismissing at 3:30 p.m. each day. Groups serve together on Wednesdays. Serving as a page is considered an excused absence from school.
