Paging Opportunity for the 2012 Legislative Session
Area students who are interested in serving as single-day pages in the Indiana House of Representatives are encouraged to sign up for the 2012 session. By serving as a House page, students are given the opportunity to view and participate in the day-to-day activities of the General Assembly.
Selected students will spend most of the day in the House chamber assisting Rep. Kathy Heuer. The day’s work involves responding to representatives’ requests, delivering messages and running errands. Pages also receive a tour of the Statehouse, including the Governor’s office and the chambers of the Indiana House, Senate and Supreme Court.
“Serving as a student page is an excellent opportunity for students seeking exposure to the legislative process,” Rep. Heuer said. “I enjoy visiting with the students while they are here, and learning about their education and career aspirations.”
Pages should be between 13 and 18 years old. The House Student Services Office will try to meet requests for specific dates, but it is encouraged that students provide at least two dates of availability. Students will be excused from school for the day, but will need to arrange for transportation to and from the Statehouse.
Availability is limited, so students should apply as soon as possible. Session begins on January 4, 2012 and ends on March 14, 2012. Those interested in serving as a page for the House can apply online at: http://www.in.gov/legislative/house_republicans/off_cms/page.html
Rep. Heuer serves District 83, which includes Whitley, Noble, and Allen counties. For the 2012 legislative session, Rep. Heuer is the vice-chair of the Local Government Committee and a member of the Education Committee and the Commerce, Small Business and Economic Development Committee.
