Senator Diamond welcomes Honorary Page to State House

Windham Middle School student Kylie Drottar served as an Honorary Page in the Maine Senate on January 16, as the guest of Senator Bill Diamond, D-Windham. Kylie had her picture taken with Senator Diamond during a break in the Senate Session.  

Senator Diamond extends invitations to honor roll students from the area’s middle schools and high schools, as a way to recognize their strong academic performance and foster an interest in civics.

The Honorary Page Program gives students an opportunity to participate in the Senate and interact with legislators. Honorary Pages see what it is like to work on the floor of the Senate and be part of a legislative session. Pages perform such duties as delivering messages to senators and distributing amendments and supplements in the chamber. Students from third grade through high school are invited to serve in the Senate Chamber as Honorary Pages when the Senate is in session. For more information or to schedule a visit, call Senator Diamond at (207) 287-1515.

“Kylie did a great job and it was a pleasure to meet her,” said Senator Diamond. “The Page Program is an excellent way for students to learn about our government. I enjoy meeting folks from my community in the State House and I strongly encourage parents or guardians of students who make the honor roll to call my office and take part.”
