All Turkish Class 8th graders and most of the 7th Grade students who are taking Turkish Class have participated in the Page Program at the Georgia Capitol on the day of Turkish-American Friendship Day, Wednesday, January 27th. The students paged for Senator Michael Williams, Representative Virgil Fludd and Representative Valerie Clark.
“‘The Georgia House of Senate and Representatives’ Page Program’ is an exclusive opportunity offered to Georgia’s students to visit the State Capitol and serve the members of the House of Representatives and Senators. This program has become an essential part of the services provided to both the legislators and the public.”
It was a great experience for the students who attended. They got a certificate afterwards and 6 hours public service volunteer hours as well. There will be another opportunity for The Page Program soon.
