STATEHOUSE – Sydney Williams from Kendallville served as a page this week for State Representative Dave Ober (R-Albion) in the Indiana House of Representatives.

“It was great having Sydney visit the Statehouse,” said Rep. Ober. “Our state’s success relies on the involvement of Hoosiers. Having an interest in public service helps increase civic engagement and understanding of how our government works.”

Williams is an 8th grade student at St. John Lutheran School. She recently won her school’s geography bee and has been named as an honor roll student multiple times. 

“Students who show an interest in our state’s continued growth and development give us hope that they will follow a path of volunteerism or public service,” Rep. Ober said. “Sydney has the characteristics of a life-long learner and I know she has a very bright future.”

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.
