RALEIGH — Emily Maerz, a student at Randolph Early College High School, recently served as a page for the N.C. House of Representatives. She is the daughter of Drew Maerz and Cynthia Maerz and was sponsored by N.C. Rep. Pat B. Hurley, R-Randolph.
Maerz was appointed and introduced to the members of the House during session on Wednesday afternoon, March 6.
The N.C. House Page Program offers a unique and firsthand experience to students from across the state. Each year, the program provides a captivating insight into government by connecting students with elected leaders of North Carolina. Pages are given the opportunity to observe North Carolina lawmakers, lobbyists, staff and constituents working together in the legislative process.
The pages witness and learn how a bill becomes a law, the structure of state government and the legislative process. House pages attend session and committee meetings each day. House pages are also given the opportunity to provide office assistance to members and staff of the House of Representatives.
