(INDIANAPOLIS) - Four students from Lawrence County visited the Indiana Statehouse on February 17 to participate in the Indiana House page program of the Indiana General Assembly.

Joseph Williams, an 8th grader of Williams Academy; Michael Carroll, a 9th grader and Jacob Carroll an 11th grader, whom are both homeschooled and Caleb Mathis, an 11th grader of Shawswick Homeschool Academy, were pages for Rep. Eric Koch, R-Bedford

The Indiana House of Representatives offers an opportunity for students between the ages of 13 and 18 to visit the Statehouse and experience a full day of legislative activity. Pages are able to see how the state legislature works firsthand in a behind-the-scenes tour. They will get to work alongside legislators, legislative assistants and interns.

On session days, pages experience how a bill becomes a law as they watch legislators on the House floor debate issues. Students also have the chance to tour the statehouse, see where the governor works and observe floor sessions of the House, Senate and Supreme Court.

The Indiana House Page Program is an educational way for students to gain a better understanding of the lawmaking process by meeting their state representative and witnessing how laws are made.
