Five Carroll County high school students have been selecte to serve as pages on the floor of the Maryland House of Delegates and Senate in the 1993 General Assembly session.
Carroll County will be represented by Jennifer Baker, Francis Scott Key High School; Katrina Hill, Liberty High School; Francine Hewes, North Carroll High School; and Amanda Kilgore, Westminster High School.
Margaux Locklear of South Carroll High has been selected as an alternate.
The student page program is designed to give high school seniors, selected by local committees, the opportunity to work for two weeks as pages and to interest them in the operation of the legislature.
Pages are required to maintain the Bill Books of individual delegates and senators, run errands, distribute literature and to provide assistance to the legislators.
Former pages have said they would like to see longer legislative sessions so that more high school seniors can get a behind-the-scenes peek at how state government functions.
Others said they enjoyed the experience of meeting the governor and observing the speaker at work.
About 1,500 seniors at the county's five public high schools and the Carroll Christian Academy were eligible for the program.
Donald P. Vetter, supervisor of social studies, formed a Carroll County Selection Committee composed of 10 high school students and five teachers.
