Senator Diamond welcomes local student to State House as Senate Page

Sen. Bill Diamond, D-Windham, welcomed Nathaniel Richmond from Windham High School to the State House on Thursday, June 21. Nathaniel and his father had their picture taken with Sen. Diamond during a break in the Senate Session. Sen. 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 to help foster their 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. This Legislature is in the process of finishing its business, but the Senate will reconvene in January of 2019. For more information, call Sen. Diamond at (207) 287-1515.
