Five Frederick County students will serve as pages, and one as alternate, for the Maryland General Assembly 2019 legislative session. All are high school seniors.
They are Sarah Buckley from Linganore High, Nicholas Gray from Frederick High, Bridget O’Toole from Middletown High, Joshua Turnbull from Gov. Thomas Johnson High and Emily Wells from Urbana High.
The alternate is Sara Welgoss from Oakdale High.
Serving as a legislative page is a unique opportunity for students to learn firsthand about the workings of the legislative process in Maryland. Apportionment of pages, by county, is based on the census taken at the beginning of each decade. Maryland pages must be senior high school students residing in the state.
