State Sen. Mitch Seabaugh (R-Sharpsburg) will host his annual Page Day at the Capitol for students from his district, which includes Troup County.
Students sixth grade and above will serve as pages for the Senate on Thursday, Feb. 12.
“I encourage students, particularly those interested in civics and government, to take advantage of this excellent opportunity to experience the legislative process first-hand,” Seabaugh said. “This is a chance for students to experience American politics and watch the state legislature work.”
Pages are granted access to the Senate chamber and deliver messages to senators on the floor. They may also be called on by senators to run special errands. Each page is sponsored by his local senator. They will receive a certificate, $10 honorarium and are scheduled to have their pictures taken with Seabaugh and Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle.
Parents and teachers who would like to nominate students to serve as pages should contact Seabaugh’s office at 404-656-6446. Students must be 12 or older. The day will count as an excused absence from school. Please submit any page requests as soon as possible. There are only five slots that remain available this year and students will be considered on a first come, first serve basis.
