House Page Program For Teens

December 20, 2013
By

Is your teenage son or daughter interested in politics? If so, the House Page Program for the 2014 legislative session may be right up their alley.

The program allows students 13 to 18 years of age the opportunity to visit the Indiana Statehouse for a day and view the legislative process first hand. Students who serve as pages receive an excused absence from school for the day.

Visiting pages are able to attend committee hearings, where bills are being explored and discussed in an in-depth manner; witness section, where bills that pass out of committee are put up for a vote in front of the entire House; as well as help staff members with the daily tasks that keep this operation going.

In addition to seeing the General Assembly, students will also have the opportunity to tour locations such as the governor’s office, the chambers of the Indiana House and Senate as well as the Indiana Supreme Court.

“Each year as I look forward to another legislative session, the opportunity to meet more young Hoosiers is one of the things I look forward to the most. I am always so impressed by their interest in state government, and their eagerness to get involved,” said District 67 State Representative Randy Frye said.

Pages are responsible for their own transportation to and from the Statehouse, but Frye said it is worth the trip.

“I highly encourage our local students to apply today, as spots tend to fill up quickly,” he added.

If you are interested apply here.

Interested applicants can also apply by phone at 1-800-382-9841.

Spots will be available on session days: Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from January through mid-March. When applying, applicants are asked to provide two different dates that they are available.

Frye said, “I cannot wait to see a whole new group of District 67 students this session, but until then, I wish you all the peace and love that accompanies Christmas and a New Year filled with joy!”

22nd Annual Metamora Grad School... @ Old School Grounds Shelter House
Sep 5 @ 12:00 pm
This is a casual reunion for anyone who ever attended Metamora Grade School, and an excellent opportunity to reminisce about the good ‘ole days at Metamora School. Take yourself back in time as you visit with some of your former schoolmates. The Metamora School days are remembered by many from this era as days of hardships, yet they also remain as some of their fondest memories of youth. The school has been gone about 36 years now, since about 1979. Please feel welcome to bring your family, old photographs or class pictures, or any old school mementos. All ages are welcome. Attendance in past years has ranged from 25 – 100. This event is very informal and will begin with a pitch-in lunch at noon. Dress appropriately for visiting at the outside, open shelter. Restrooms are available a couple hundred yards away at the State Building. Please bring a covered dish and your own beverage. Let’s keep our memories of the old school alive as long as we’re alive. Call Jim Hunter at 812-350-8253 for more information.
