HERMANTOWN HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT SPENDS WEEK AT STATE CAPITOL


ST. PAUL, MN Hermantown High School junior Victoria Johnson participated last week in the Minnesota House of Representatives High School Page Program at the State Capitol in St. Paul. Johnson had a unique opportunity to experience the legislative process firsthand, and work directly with State Representative Mary Murphy (DFL Hermantown).

For over thirty years the High School Page Program has provided students a unique experiential legislative education opportunity in St. Paul. Participants are exposed to a wide variety of experiences designed to provide them with a deep understanding of our state government. Among the many highlights included in each student's week at the Capitol are:

Individual meetings with legislators designed to allow students to discuss the issues that matter most to them.
Experiencing the legislative process firsthand by assisting members during legislative session.
Participating in a mock committee session designed to develop students' leadership skills and to inspire them to think critically about the issues confronting our state.
Providing students with the opportunity to meet with constitutional officers, members of the judiciary, lobbyists, and members of the media.
