Sen. Messmer welcomes local students to Statehouse

State Sen. Mark Messmer (R-Jasper) welcomed Haubstadt resident and Gibson Southern High School student Luke Snyder as well as Rockport resident and Chrisney Elementary Student Chase Blubaum to serve as Senate pages at the Statehouse in January.

Pages spend a day at the Statehouse touring the historic building, observing debates from the Senate floor and interacting with their state senator. 

"I enjoyed seeing Luke and Chase take time out of their day to come to the Statehouse to learn about state government," said Messmer. "It is always a pleasure meeting young Hoosiers who are willing to learn about their state legislature."

Students in grades six through 12 participate in the page program on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays during the legislative session. Groups serve on Wednesdays.
