Rep. Dermody paging students for 2011 session

STATEHOUSE - State Representative Tom Dermody (R-LaPorte) is encouraging students ages 13-18 to sign up for the Indiana House Page Program.  The program allows students to view and participate in the day-to-day activities of the General Assembly and the Statehouse.

"The House Page Program is an excellent example of an impactful educational opportunity offered here in Indiana," said Rep. Dermody. "I encourage all students eligible to apply and experience the legislative process firsthand."

Hundreds of students in the page program get the change to tour the governor's office, the chambers of the Indiana House and Senate, and the Indiana Supreme Court. Pages also get the chance to witness floor sessions, committee meetings and help staff members while working closely with their representative.

Students will be given an excused absence for one day of school, and are responsible for transportation to and from Indianapolis. Appointments fill up quickly, so those interested should apply as soon as possible.

If you are interested in serving as a page for the House of Representatives send your name, age, address, phone number and school to State Rep. Tom Dermody, 200 W. Washington St., Statehouse Room 401-2, Indianapolis, IN 46204, or e-mail requests to H20@in.gov.
