STATEHOUSE (April 30, 2019) – Bellmont High School student Gunner Butler recently joined State Rep. Matt Lehman (R-Berne) at the Statehouse where he served as a page.

Butler, from Decatur, toured the governor’s office, the House and Senate chambers, and the Indiana Supreme Court. He also helped staff with their daily tasks and met with Lehman to learn more about the legislative process.

“This is a unique opportunity for students to gain insight and better understand how our state government operates,” Lehman said. “I always look forward to students like Gunner visiting the Statehouse and being civically engaged. Hopefully others can participate next year.”

Students between the ages of 13 to 18 who are interested in paging during the 2020 session can learn more at Participants receive an excused absence from school and groups can request to page together.


Rep. Matt Lehman (R-Berne) represents House District 79, which includes all of Adams County and portions of Allen and Wells counties.
