Pages spend a day at the Statehouse touring the historic building, observing debates from the chamber floor and interacting with their state senators.
"Serving as a Senate page is a great way for students to see how laws are enacted and experience a day in their state's capitol," Steele said. "I hope this was a valuable learning tool for young Hoosiers - one that encourages them to stay engaged in state government."
The page program has concluded for this session.
