STATEHOUSE (March 11, 2019) – State Rep. Jim Lucas (R-Seymour) recently welcomed 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 Lucas to learn more about the legislative process:

  • Sam Beavers, from Brownstown, attends Immanuel Lutheran;
  • Hunter Day, from Crothersville, attends Crothersville Middle School;
  • Destiny Long, from Freetown, is a homeschooled student;
  • Eric Long, from Freetown, is a homeschooled student;
  • Isaac Long, from Freetown, is a homeschooled student;
  • Hector Solis, from Indianapolis, attends Crosspointea Christian Academy; and
  • Luke Williams, from Plainfield, attends Crosspointe Christian Academy.

“The House page program is a great opportunity for local students,” Lucas said. “Serving as a page is beneficial for young Hoosiers hoping to become more informed and involved in their state government. I recommend taking advantage of this opportunity.”

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