Local student serves as page in the NC Senate

The North Carolina Senate was honored recently to have Sarah Wallace Strickland, a student at Lakewood High School, serve as a page. She is the daughter of Mark and Sharon Strickland of Salemburg. Sarah Wallace was sponsored and appointed by the Senate President Pro Tempore, Phil Berger of Rockingham County.

Statewide high school students in grades 9 through 12 serve as pages when the General Assembly is in session. They perform valuable duties for the Senators and their office staff. They attend daily Senate sessions, committee meetings, and assist staff members with office duties during the week they serve in the Legislature.
