STATEHOUSE (May 9, 2019) – State Rep. Sean Eberhart (R-Shelbyville) recently welcomed local student pages to the Statehouse.

As House pages, these students toured the governor’s office, the House and Senate chambers, and the Indiana Supreme Court. They also helped staff with their daily tasks and met with Eberhart to learn more about the legislative process:

  • Corinne Coovert, from New Palestine, attends New Palestine Junior High School;
  • Elise Denger, from New Palestine, attends New Palestine Junior High School;
  • Alexandra Gobel, from Shelbyville, attends Shelbyville Middle School;
  • Julia Hamblen, from Shelbyville, attends Shelbyville High School;
  • Madelyn Henry, from Shelbyville, is a homeschooled student;
  • Mylena Lizardi-Vazquez, from New Palestine, attends New Palestine Junior High School;
  • Kayla Rawlins, from Shelbyville, attends Shelbyville High School;
  • Taylor Roy, from Edinburgh, attends Franklin Community High School;
  • Sarah Spence, from Shelbyville, attends Shelbyville High School, and is pictured with State Rep. Tom Saunders (R-Lewisville); and
  • Hope Thomas, from New Palestine, attends New Palestine Junior High School.


“Spending the day as a page at the Statehouse is a great way to get a unique perspective of the legislative process,” Eberhart said. “Meeting with students from our district and showing them what it’s like working at the Statehouse is a highlight of session. Hopefully others can participate next year.”

Students between the ages of 13 to 18 who are interested in paging during the 2020 session can learn more at www.indianahouserepublicans.com/pageprogram. Participants receive an excused absence from school and groups can request to page together.
