Kalena Bumbala, Ashley Hess, Gino Riggio, Max Skjeveland, Jenica Teregeyo, Denali Thorn, Lance Buschkoetter, Nataly Fonseca, Mercedes Olson and Ryan Ostler of the Indiana School for the Deaf were State Legislative Pages recently.
This program allows our students to participate in interactive educational experiences to learn more about how our state government operates. They had a tour at Indiana's historical Statehouse which included the House and Senate Chambers, the Supreme Court, and the Governor's Office. They had the chance to meet and talk with their own district representatives as well as observe the legislative session directly from the floor of the House, listening to debates on important policy issues.

Teacher sponsors were John Borkowski and Eric Bruckman.
