RALEIGH — Two Richmond Senior High School students recently served as legislative pages in the North Carolina General Assembly.
Maggi Chambers, daughter of Lester and Carol Chambers, of Rockingham, served as a page in the N.C. House of Representatives. She was sponsored by Rep. Ken Goodman, D-Richmond.
Briana Nicole Allen, daughter of Lucinda Allen of Hamlet, served as a page in the state Senate. She was sponsored by Sen. Tom McInnis, R-Richmond, and appointed by President Pro-tem Phil Berger, R-Rockingham.
Statewide high school students in grades 9 through 12 serve as pages when the General Assembly is in session, performing duties for legislators and their office staff.
They attend sessions in the respective chambers and various committee meetings, having the opportunity to observe the legislative process in action — learning how a bill becomes law and the structure of state government.
Richmond Senior High School student Maggi Chambers stands with state Reps. Garland Pierce, D-Scotland, and Ken Goodman, D-Richmond, while serving as a page in the N.C. House of Representatives last month. Another student, Briana Allen, served as a Senate Page, sponsored by Sen. Tom McInnis.
