INTERESTED IN POLITICS OR GOVERNMENT?
The Legislative Page Program is a supervised, educational experience that involves serving General Assembly members in the Kentucky Senate Chamber. Although pages generally have one Senate sponsor, they perform a valuable service for all senators and staff by delivering messages, running errands, copying material, and delivering bills. Pages should be 12-18 years of age. Parents are responsible for getting the page to the Page Clerk’s office, located inside the Capitol in Frankfort. If you are interested in participating in the Page Program for State Senator Stan Humphries, applications are available in the guidance office.
