Landon Sumner and Mason Shelton, along with other students from around the state, participated in the Legislative Page program at the State Capitol in Frankfort.

Landon is a 12th grader at Trigg County High School, and Mason is an 8th grader at Trigg County Middle School. Both students submitted an essay on “Why I want to be a Legislative Page”, as well as, artwork depicting how Family Resource and Youth Service Centers make a difference in their school.

Landon served as a page for Senator Ken Winters, and Mason served as a page for Representative John Tilley on the house floor. Both Landon and Mason have participated in the Kentucky Youth Association (KYA) conference in the past; however, being a legislative page gave them a first-hand view of how our state government operates.

This program is sponsored by the FRYSCKY Coalition, a nonprofit organization that provides legislative advocacy, as well as, support for Family Resource and Youth Service Center coordinators and staff.

The Legislative Page program gives students the opportunity to observe lawmakers in Frankfort and to better understand the legislative process. In addition, it helps them to understand that they, too, can make a difference in the public arena.
