Amber-Pocasset High School students Jay Lee and Kyle Norvell recently served as pages at the State Capitol for Senator Ron Justice.

Pages provide important services during busy legislative sessions. They assist in committee meetings and daily sessions of the full Senate.

They also help shuttle messages to Senators in the Chamber from other legislators and Senate staff. The page program provides students with the educational experience of learning about the legislative process firsthand.

They get to participate in mock sessions known as “Pageville” where they assume the responsibilities of legislative officials and others involved in the process.

This, along with actually assisting the Senators and Senate staff, helps teach them about the legislative process and how bills become law.

During the week, the pages had the opportunity to tour the Capitol and the Oklahoma History Center as well as meet Gov. Brad Henry and Lt. Gov. Jari Askins. The students served at the Capitol during the fifteenth week of the legislative session, May 14-17, 2007.
