Students selected to serve as 2014 General Assembly pages

Three Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) high school students were selected to serve as student pages in the 2014 Maryland General Assembly Legislative Page program. The program gives students the opportunity to work with the General Assembly for two weeks during the 2014 legislative session.

The students who will serve as student pages for the 2014 legislative session are Kaitlyn Crook of Thomas Stone High School; Alec Hunsacker of La Plata High School; and Katelyn Turner of Maurice J. McDonough High School. Asja Bard of Westlake High School was selected as Student Page Alternate.

The Maryland General Assembly Legislative Page program offers the opportunity for students to serve as a student page to Charles County Public Schools seniors annually. Applicants are selected through a series of interviews and must also write an essay to describe their interest to participate in the program.

During the two week period, student pages will be assigned to work with either the Maryland Senate or the House of Delegates in Annapolis. Duties of student pages include delivering messages and materials to members, running errands, keeping members’ books up to date, assisting visitors and working with staff committees and other legislative offices.

The program is designed to interest youth in state government and the proceedings of the legislature, increase participation in government, and provide students with worthwhile experiences in state government.
