STATEHOUSE (May 1, 2019) – State Rep. Peggy Mayfield (R-Martinsville) recently welcomed student pages to the Statehouse.

As House pages, these participants toured the governor’s office, the House and Senate chambers, and the Indiana Supreme Court. They also helped staff with daily duties and joined Mayfield on the House floor during the legislative session:

  • River Atkins, from Martinsville, attends Martinsville High School;
  • Christopher Parker, from Martinsville, attends Tabernacle Christian School;
  • Elizabeth Parker, from Martinsville, attends Tabernacle Christian School;
  • Abigail Ross, from Martinsville, attends Tabernacle Christian School;
  • Joshua Stewart, from Bloomington, attends Tabernacle Christian School; and
  • Ethan Wright, from Bloomington, attends Tabernacle Christian School.

“Every year I look forward to meeting and talking with students from our community,” Mayfield said. “During the time I get to spend with them on the House floor, they ask questions, share their thoughts about state government and experience the same view of the chamber as the Speaker of the House while we commemorate their visit with a photo at the rostrum. The page program is a unique opportunity for students to get a firsthand look at the legislative process. I hope every student who participated had a positive experience that keeps them interested in state government and public service.”

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.
