News release from Rep. Jud McMillin
(Indianapolis, Ind.) - State Rep. Jud McMillin (R-Brookville) is encouraging local students to apply for the Statehouse Page Program.
The Indiana House of Representatives offers the chance for students between the ages of 13 and 18 to come to the Statehouse and participate in the legislative process.
“I am very excited to meet with the pages and hear their thoughts concerning the Statehouse and a legislative session,” said Rep. McMillin.
The session that is coming up will begin January 5 and run thru April 29. A student, who participates in the Page Program, will observe a session from the floor and assist Rep. McMillin with his daily activities. They will also tour the Statehouse which includes the Governor’s Office, the Supreme Court, the House Chamber and the Senate Chamber.
“The page program at the state house is wonderfully comprehensive. It shows the pages many different aspects of the Statehouse and they do really get to see it all,” said Rep. McMillin.
Students that choose to participate will have an excused day of absence from their school and are responsible for finding their own transportation both to and from the Statehouse.
“Availability fills up fast, so I encourage students, who are interested, to sign up as quickly as possible,” stated Rep. McMillin.
Those interested in serving as a page for the House of Representatives should send their name, age, address, phone number and school to H68@iga.in.gov or send via mail Attn: Rep. McMillin, 200 W. Washington St. Indianapolis, IN 46204.
