Six Baltimore County Seniors Selected To Serve As Student Pages For The 2023 Legislative Session
BALTIMORE COUNTY - Six Baltimore County School seniors have been selected to serve as student pages for the 2023 legislative session of the Maryland General Assembly.
The MGA page program was created in 1970 by House Speaker Thomas Hunter Lowe. It was designed to foster student leadership, educate students about the legislative process, and promote youth interest in government.
The Student Pages will distribute materials and messages to legislators, maintain bill books, and assist visitors as they learn more about the legislative process.
During the 13 weeks of the legislative session, from the second week in January through early April, each page will serve for one week during the first half of the session and return for a second during the latter half.
The selected students are:
- Josie Choe, Dulaney High School
- Maja Durkovic, Eastern Technical High School
- David Klein, Towson High School
- Aima Raza, Western School of Technology
- Gabriella Wiggins, Franklin High School
- Finian York, Perry Hall High School
Each page is paid a stipend of $55 per day, worked to help defray expenses. The page office arranges for students from outside Anne Arundel County to stay in page housing near the State House for $25 per night.
