AUGUSTA — On Tuesday, Sen. Chipman, D-Portland, welcomed Portland High School students Prudence Mabaya and Nimo Ahmed to serve as Honorary Pages in the Maine Senate. Prudence and Nimo served as Honorary Pages with a group of students representing the University of Maine Cooperative Extension 4-H Youth Development Program.

The Honorary Page program gives students an opportunity to participate in the Senate and interact with legislators. Honorary Pages see what it is like to work on the floor of the Senate and be part of a legislative session. Pages perform such duties as delivering messages to senators and distributing amendments and supplements in the chamber. Students from third grade through high school are invited to serve in the Senate Chamber as Honorary Pages when the Senate is in session. For more information or to schedule a visit, call Sen. Chipman at (207) 287-1515.
