Local legislators welcome Hendricks County student pages to the Statehouse

STATEHOUSE (March 14, 2024) – Local legislators recently welcomed Hendricks County students to the Statehouse where they participated in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2024 legislative session.

“I always look forward to meeting students from our area and learning more about them,” said State Rep. Jeff Thompson (R-Lizton). “The page program is an excellent way for young Hoosiers to learn more about their government and our state history. I highly encourage students to sign up to page next session.”

As pages, the students assisted lawmakers and staff with daily duties, toured offices of all branches of government in the Statehouse, and joined lawmakers on the House floor to witness and learn about the legislative process.

“Students have an opportunity to explore the Statehouse and watch how our laws are made,” said State Rep. Greg Steuerwald (R-Avon). “It’s a wonderful way to support what the students learn in the classroom and hopefully spark an interest in public service.”

These Hendricks County students served as pages during the 2024 legislative session:

State Rep. Becky Cash (R-Zionsville) said students ages 13 to 18 should consider participating during the 2025 legislative session.

“This is a great experience for students to go behind the scenes and learn more about how state government works,” Cash said. “I encourage more young Hoosiers to come to the Statehouse next session and be a page for a day.”
