Local students serve as pages at Statehouse


The Tribune Staff Reports

District 69 Rep. Jim Lucas, R-Seymour, recently welcomed student pages to the Statehouse in Indianapolis.

As House pages, the students toured the governor’s office, House and Senate chambers and Indiana Supreme Court. They also helped staff with their daily tasks and met with Lucas to learn more about the legislative process.

Those serving as pages were Daniel Bratcher of Seymour, who attends Seymour High School; Erin Hall and Megan Hall of Crothersville, who attend Austin Middle School; Sydney Hill and Olivia Smith of Seymour, who attend Immanuel Lutheran School; and Davis Tracey of Seymour, who attends Trinity Lutheran High School.

“This is a chance for young people to come to the Statehouse and learn about our state government,” said Lucas, whose district includes portions of Bartholomew, Jackson, Jennings and Jefferson counties. “It is always great to see so many Hoosier students interested in their state legislature, and I hope more students take advantage of the opportunity next session.”

Students between the ages of 13 and 18 who are interested in paging during the 2020 session can learn more at indianahouserepublicans.com/pageprogram. Participants receive an excused absence from school, and groups can request to page together.
