Each year the Maryland State Legislature invites high school students throughout the state to serve as pages on the floor of the House of Delegates and Senate.  Carroll County is eligible to select four representatives and one alternate.  Seniors from all seven (7) public high schools and non-public high schools in Carroll County were eligible to apply for the honor of serving as a student page. 

 This year the students representing Carroll County are:

  • Nina Elsner – Liberty High School
  • Addison Lomax – Winters Mill High School
  • Morgan McGlynn – Westminster High School
  • Madeleine Sprinkle – Gerstell Academy
  • Vivienne Sharp – Westminster High School (alternate).

The program enables high school seniors, selected by a local committee, to work as legislative pages for two non-consecutive weeks during the regular session of the legislature.  It is designed to interest youth in state government, particularly in the proceedings of the Maryland legislature.  The page program also has a goal of increasing participation in government and fostering leadership among youth by providing students with worthwhile experiences in state government.  During their assignment, the pages selected for 2020 will maintain the bill books of individual delegates and senators, run errands, distribute literature and provide general assistance to the legislators.
