Posted: February 10, 2019 | Senator Deschambault

AUGUSTA — With the Legislature back in session, Sen. Susan Deschambault, D-Biddeford, reminds local schools and students about the Senate Honorary Page program at the State House in Augusta.

Sen. Deschambault welcomes students from third grade through high school to participate who are from District 32, which includes Biddeford, Alfred, Arundel, Dayton, Lyman and Kennebunkport. The daylong program gives students a unique opportunity not only to observe Maine’s legislative process, but to be a part of it.

“I would like to extend an invitation to the students of my district to serve as an Honorary Page,” said Sen. Deschambault. “It is such a pleasure to get to know the students who serve as Honorary Pages, and I know it is an exciting time for them to be part of the legislative process.”

Honorary Pages help deliver messages, distribute documents within the Senate Chamber, interact with senators and, most importantly, take part in a real-world, interactive legislative learning experience.

Sen. Deschambault sends a personal invitation to students who make Honor Roll.

The Legislature is scheduled to be in session through late June. Honorary Pages are needed throughout the session, so scheduling is flexible.
