Senator Stroebel Welcomes Hank Bell of Saukville as a Page for a Day
On Wednesday, our office welcomed Hank Bell of Living Word Lutheran High School to the State Capitol and the Senate floor. As a ‘Page for a Day,’ Hank took the morning and afternoon to learn the ins and outs of state government and the various functions carried out in the State Capitol. In closely observing and participating in the legislative process, Hank and the other sponsored pages were given the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the duties of lawmakers, staff members, and other stakeholders.
The typical duties of a Senate page are comprised of the delivery of legislative materials and communications between offices and the Senate floor, preparing the Senate chamber and Senate committees for hearings, and distributing bill drafts, amendments, and other official documents.
The Page for a Day experience is invaluable in its ability to expand the civic knowledge of our middle and high school students outside of the traditional classroom setting. The program will be offered throughout the remainder of the current legislative session. I encourage any student (12 years or older) in the 20th Senate District with an interest in state government to apply by downloading this application. It would be my pleasure to serve as a sponsor for any future pages! Feel free to contact my office with any questions.
