The legislative page program gives students inside knowledge of the lawmaking process. It also shows them how decisions made right here in Montgomery affect everyday life, said Boyd.
"My visit as a page this week was very intriguing. I had the opportunity to learn something new, and this is certainly an experience I will remember for a lifetime," said Wilson.
The legislative page program allows students ages 12-18 to assist each house of the Legislature during the session. The duties of a page include assisting the members of the House and Senate and certain staff members. Pages perform tasks such as obtaining copies of bills, resolutions, amendments, substitutes and other official documents, as well as delivering messages to and from legislators. Pages are provided the rare privilege to work on the floor of the House or Senate, where legislative action takes place.
"It was a delight to have Jenecia in Montgomery this past week, and I hope her experience will encourage other students at Jacksonville High School to participate in the page program," said Fite.
