AUGUSTA — With the Legislature set to reconvene in January, Sen. Bill Diamond of Windham would like to remind local schools and students about the Senate Honorary Page program at the State House in Augusta.
The daylong program gives students a unique opportunity to not only observe the state's legislative process, but to be a part of it. All students from third grade through high school are encouraged to participate.
“This program is a great opportunity for local students to learn more about the Legislature and its work,” said Diamond. “Hopefully the experience will inspire some to get involved in their community and someday serve in public office.”
Honorary pages help deliver messages, distribute documents within the senate chamber, interact with the senators and, most importantly, take part in a real-world, interactive legislative learning experience.
The legislature will begin its second session on January 6 and is expected to run through April 2016. Honorary pages are needed throughout the session, so scheduling is flexible.
