Windham Middle School student Dakota Cook served as an Honorary Page in the Maine Senate on March 28 as the guest of Sen. Bill Diamond, D-Windham. Dakota and his parents, Michael and Christine Cook, took a picture with Sen. Diamond during a break in the Senate Session. Sen. Diamond extends invitations to honor roll students from the area’s middle and high schools as a way to recognize their strong academic performance and foster an interest in civics.
The Honorary Page program gives students an opportunity to participate in the Senate and interact with legislators. Honorary Pages see what it is like to work on the floor of the Senate and be part of a legislative session. Pages perform such duties as delivering messages to senators and distributing amendments and supplements in the chamber. Students from third grade through high school are invited to serve in the Senate Chamber as Honorary Pages when the Senate is in session. For more information or to schedule a visit, call Sen. Diamond at: (207) 287-1515.
