STATEHOUSE (Dec. 19, 2018) – State Reps. Don Lehe (R-Brookston) and Sharon Negele (R-Attica) encourage students who want to learn more about state government to participate in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2019 legislative session.

According to Lehe, those who are between the ages of 13 to 18 can spend a day at the Statehouse in Indianapolis helping staff and local legislators, touring government offices, and learning about the legislative process.

“The page program gives students the chance to learn about our state government in the place where laws are made,” Lehe said. “When spending the day at the Statehouse, young Hoosiers watch the legislative process and interact with local state leaders.”

Student pages receive an excused absence from school and groups can participate together.

“It’s always great to see students from our community paging at the Statehouse,” Negele said. “As we head into the 2019 legislative session, I hope to see many friendly faces from our area participating in this excellent learning opportunity.”

Negele said those interested can learn more and sign up by visiting www.indianahouserepublicans.com/pageprogram or calling 800-382-9841.

The 2019 legislative session begins Thursday, Jan. 3, and must conclude by April 30.
