OKLAHOMA CITY – A local student shined at the State Capitol with her dedication and hard work serving as House page for state Rep. Phil Richardson.
Kyleigh Humphrey, a senior at Minco High School, was selected to serve as House page for Richardson this week.
The Oklahoma House of Representatives maintains a program designed to involve the best young people of Oklahoma in the government of the people.
Every week the House hosts 25 to 30 pages to help them through their daily House activities.
In the evenings, the students get to enjoy their free time with each other by eating out, visiting tourist attractions and even participating in their own mock legislature.
“This program allows young Oklahomans to see how legislators work and gives them insight into how government works—how laws are passed—so they can then go back and inform their peers. It was an honor to work with Kyleigh Humphrey.”
Richardson said Kyleigh conducted herself in a manner to prove the worthiness of her selection.
“She served with distinction, bringing honor not only upon the House of Representatives, but also her family, school and hometown,” said Richardson.
