Wanted: Legislative Pages
One of the most gratifying things I do is to sponsor Pages in the Legislature. It is a great opportunity to bring a child who needs to feel special to Charleston, January 13th -March 12th.
I love to sponsor Pages since I was not allowed to be a Congressional Page when I was young because I was a girl.
The West Virginia Legislature’s Page Program gives students, grades 6 through 12, from West Virginia’s public and nonpublic schools an opportunity to serve as Pages in the West Virginia Legislature for one day during the regular session. Pages serve members of the House and Senate in a nonpartisan capacity, within the Legislature. The Program accomplishes the following objectives:
Provide students with a meaningful and exciting experience in state government;
Meet and work with young people from throughout the state and state legislators;
Have students share thoughts and ideas with lawmakers as they make decisions affecting citizens.
Anyone visiting our beautiful state Capitol should try to schedule a tour and visit the state museum in the Culture Center.
