“It was great seeing Girl Scouts from our community come to the Statehouse and learn about the legislative process,” said Rep. Ober. “The Girl Scout program does so much for young women, empowering them so they know they can accomplish whatever they set their minds to.”
The Girl Scout mission states that the program “builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.” The Girl Scout program is open to girls in kindergarten through grade 12. Since its creation in 1912, Girl Scouting has influenced the lives of more than 50 million American women who have participated in the organization in their youth.
“I truly appreciate these young women coming to Indianapolis to volunteer in our page program,” Rep. Ober said. “These student volunteers show their interest in the well-being of our state, giving us the hope that future generations will continue building on the Hoosier legacy toward a greater tomorrow.”
The Indiana House Page Program provides students an opportunity to see a day of various legislative activities, while visiting the capitol building and other visitor attractions such as the Indiana House and Senate chambers, the Indiana Supreme Court and the governor’s office. The next opportunity to apply to serve as a page in the House will be during the 2015 session.
Rep. Ober represents all of Noble County and portions of Allen, Elkhart, LaGrange and Whitley counties.
