(NASHVILLE, TN), January 24, 2012 — State Senator Ken Yager (R-Harriman) today issued an invitation to local students to experience the legislature in action as a page in the State Senate. Page duties consist of anything from making copies, running errands, to distributing legislative information to members of the General Assembly. They report to the Chief Clerk of the House and Senate.
“This is the best civics lesson I can imagine,” said Senator Yager. “Student pages are right there with us on the Senate floor. They get a unique front-row view of the lawmaking process.”
Students wishing to be considered as a Senate Page can contact Senator Yager at:
1 800 449-TENN ext. 11449 or at (615) 741-1449. The email address is [email protected] and the mailing address is 6 Legislative Plaza, Nasvhille, TN 37243.
“I hope many local students will take advantage of the opportunity to serve as a Senate page,” Yager concluded. Yager represents District 12 in the State Senate which consists of Campbell, Fentress, Morgan, Rhea, Roane, and Scott Counties. Pickett County will also be added to District 12 as a result of the reapportionment legislation passed earlier this year.
