Applications now available for Indiana Senate page program
The Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the 2019 Senate page program, Senate President Pro Tem Rodric Bray (R-Martinsville) has announced.
Through the full-day program, students in grades 6-12 can tour Indiana’s Statehouse, listen to debates and help staff with age-appropriate tasks. Students also have the opportunity to meet with their state senator.
“It’s always great to meet and talk with students from across our community who page for the Senate,” Bray said. “Students are taught about state government in school, but this program provides them with a special learning opportunity where they can see firsthand how our state government operates. I encourage all interested student to consider applying.”
The Senate Page Program will begin in January and run through mid-April. Positions fill quickly, so it is important to apply early.
Pages are scheduled for Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays during the legislative session. They begin their day at 8:30 a.m. and are dismissed at 3:30 p.m. Groups serve together on Wednesdays. Serving as a page is considered an excused absence from school.
Bray, as District 37 senator, represents the southern half of Putnam County -- including the southern half of Greencastle (up to and including the south side of Washington Street). Bray also represents all of his native Morgan County and portions of Johnson and Owen counties within District 37.
