Applicants sought for page program

The Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the 2019 Senate Page Program, said State Sen. Mark Messmer, R-Jasper.

Through the full-day program, students in grades six through 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.

The Senate Page Program will begin in January and run through mid-April. 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.
