Kiley Hogue, a student at East Lincoln High School, recently served as a page for the North Carolina House of Representatives. She is the daughter of Kenneth and Kelli Hogue of Denver and was sponsored by Rep. Jason Saine, R-Lincoln. Speaker of the House Thom Tillis, R-Mecklenburg, appoints the pages and introduces each one to members and citizens in the House gallery at the start of each week during Monday night’s session.
For decades, the State House has relied on the service of pages, who help deliver bills and amendments for representatives during daily House sessions and committee meetings, offer assistance in individual representatives’ offices and run errands around the Legislature. Pages spend a week at the General Assembly assisting members and their staff and learning about the structure of North Carolina government.
