STATEHOUSE (March 25, 2020) – State Rep. Jeff Thompson (R-Lizton) recently welcomed local students to the Statehouse where they served as pages during the 2020 legislative session:

Through the Indiana House Page Program, these students toured offices of all branches of government in the Statehouse, helped staff with daily responsibilities and joined Thompson on the House floor to witness the legislative process.

"It's always encouraging to see young Hoosiers paging at the Statehouse and showing an interest in how the state legislature works," Thompson said. "By interacting with their lawmakers, these students' minds were opened up to a world of opportunities they may not have ever been exposed to if it weren't for the program."

Thompson said that while spots for this year’s page program has concluded, students between the ages of 13 and 18 should consider participating in 2021. For more information, call 1-800-382-9841.
