State Sen. Johnny Nugent and Eric Acheson.
(Indianapolis, Ind.) - State Sen. Johnny Nugent (R-Lawrenceburg) recently welcomed area students to serve as legislative pages at the Indiana Statehouse.
Pages were Eric Acheson, son of Allan and Patricia Acheson and student at Sunman Dearborn Middle School and Nicholas Bischoff, son of Paul and Carla Bischoff and student at East Central Middle School.
During the legislative session, pages spend one day at the Statehouse working with their senator and Senate staff. Nugent said student pages start the day in orientation before touring the historic Statehouse. Throughout the day, pages spend time in the Senate Chamber observing the introduction of bills, listening to debates and delivering important messages among senators and staff.
Students in grades six through 12 are invited to serve as pages, Nugent said.
