ATLANTA (February 28, 2012) – Sen. Lindsey Tippins (R-Marietta) welcomed local student Anna Tucker, freshman at North Cobb Christian School, to the Capitol on Wednesday, Feb. 21. Tucker participated in the Senate Page Program for the day and was honored with Senate Resolution 860 for her achievements as Miss Cherokee Rose Outstanding Teen for 2012.
“It’s been a privilege and delight to have Anna page for me at the Capitol,” said Sen. Tippins. “Her advocacy for human trafficking and community service sets her apart from her peers, and it is clear that she will be a success in any endeavor she undertakes.”
Tucker is a member of the National Beta Club, Tri-M Music Honor Society and a class officer at her school. She exemplifies her pageant platform “Do Something Now” through her work with Wellspring Living to help exploited and abused women and girls get off the streets, heal and begin anew.
As a page for Sen. Tippins, Tucker gained hands-on experience about the Capitol, General Assembly and the legislative process. Senate Pages serve Senators by delivering important information and messages to them while in the Senate Chamber.
Each senator is limited to 20 pages; Pages must be at least 12 years old and spots are filled on a first come, first serve basis. Those interested in serving as a page should contact the Senate Page Program Coordinator Nancy Ray at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 404-657-7004.
