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.
