NORTH DALLAS HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT COMPLETES THE PAGE PROGRAM IN THE U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

Washington, DC (Thursday, June 10, 2010) LaShaun Steward, a junior at North Dallas High School, has finished the Congressional Page Program.

“I was speechless when I first heard that I was selected,” said Steward. “Words cannot express the excitement I felt.”

Steward, who was one of 72 pages, wrote two essays with one concentrating on the contributions she planned to make to the diverse group in the program. Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson sponsored Steward’s selection.

“I congratulate LaShaun on the wonderful opportunity of serving as a Congressional Page, and I know she represented Dallas well,” Congresswoman Johnson said. “Her experience as a Page is one that will serve her well as she works to achieve her goals.”

Steward served as a Congressional Page from January 24, 2010 to June 4, 2010. While on the Hill, Steward assisted Representatives with their legislative duties, attended all sessions of the House, and delivered messages and packages. Steward also earned a salary for her work and received credit for her second semester after attending the House Page School.
