U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) announced today that he has appointed Makenzie Creach, a junior at Hamilton High School in Hamilton, Ohio, to serve as one of only 30 U.S. Senate Pages for the Spring 2020 program, starting on January 27, 2020 and ending on June 4, 2020. Makenzie will have the opportunity to work in the Senate chamber and assist with day-to-day operations at the Capitol.
“We are looking forward to having a future Ohio leader in the Senate this spring,” said Portman. “Makenzie has demonstrated her talent in academics and extracurricular activities, and we are excited to watch her excel in the fast-paced world of the Senate.”
“I can’t wait to get started on this once in a lifetime opportunity. Being able to see how the Senate works on a day-to-day basis is going to be such an amazing experience that I can’t even fathom. I’m very excited to be on Capitol Hill and work with Senator Portman. I am looking forward to learning a lot while I’m there,” said Creach.
Page responsibilities include delivery of correspondence and legislative materials within the congressional complex, taking messages for members, preparing the chamber for Senate sessions, and carrying bills and amendments to the desk. Pages are also required to attend classes each morning at the Page School beginning at 6:15 am. The Senate Page Program is administrated by the Sergeant at Arms, the Secretary of the Senate, and the party secretaries.
Hamilton City School District congratulates Makenzie on this accomplishment and is proud to have her represent our school and community on Capitol Hill!
