Day at the Statehouse

Thursday, February 18, 2010

North Putnam Middle School students Taylor Thornell recently spent a day at the Statehouse in Indianapolis serving as a page for State Sen. Connie Lawson. Thornell is the son of David Thornell. During the legislative session, pages spend one day at the Statehouse working with their senator and Senate staff. According to Lawson, student pages start the day in orientation before touring the historic Statehouse. Throughout the day, pages spend time in the Senate Chamber observing the introduction of bills, listening to debates and delivering important messages among senators and staff. Students in grades six through 12 are invited to serve as pages. Sen. Lawson represents Senate District 24, which includes portions of Hendricks and Putnam counties.
