AUGUSTA — Kennebec Montessori School student Daisy Bessey served as an Honorary Page in the Maine Senate on Jan. 16. Daisy was the guest of Sen. Shenna Bellows, of Manchester.

Daisy attended the Women’s March on Jan. 21, 2017, which inspired her to do a yearlong project on government at school. As part of her project she interviewed Sen. Bellows about what it is like to serve in the legislature, what she does every day, and what her favorite part about being a legislator is.

The Honorary Page program gives students an opportunity to participate in the Senate and interact with legislators. Honorary Pages see what it is like to work on the floor of the Senate and be part of a legislative session. Pages perform such duties as delivering messages to senators and distributing amendments and supplements in the chamber. Students from third grade through high school are invited to serve in the Senate Chamber as Honorary Pages when the Senate is in session.

For more information or to schedule a visit, call Sen. Bellows at 287-1515.
