Area student pages return to Statehouse

State Sen. Eric Koch, R-Bedford, welcomed two Columbus students to the Statehouse.

Josephine Fields and Aden Rice, both of Columbus and attending Brown County Junior High School, served as senate pages in January and February. Pages spend a day at the Statehouse, touring the historic building, observing debates from the senate floor and interacting with their state senators.

Students in Grades 6 through 12 participate in the page program three days per week during the legislative session.
