Wolford 2nd Graders Serving Their State On Spring Break

Wolford 2nd Graders Serving Their State On Spring Break

Wolford 2nd Graders Serving Their State On Spring Break

Many school children headed to the beach, Lego Land or Disneyland for spring break. Not the Gardner brothers.

Tyler & Preston headed to Austin and the State Capitol to serve as Senate Pages for the Honorable Senator Robert Nichols. They were invited last year and took full advantage of the opportunity as the Texas Legislature only convenes for 140 days on odd numbered years.   As a Senate Page, Tyler and Preston had the chance to set up a reception for the Lieutenant Governor, deliver bills to other Senators, and even took time out to call their Great Grandmother from the Senators desk on the Senate floor. 

This experience is great for kids of any age.  It gives children a tiny peak into the governmental process and  allows them to work side by side with many of the young adults at the Capitol. 

It is as simple as contacting your local Senator or Representative and asking for the opportunity to page at the Texas State Capitol.  Here is a great link to get the process started.
