Abbi Roark of Enid and Caroline Williamson of Batesville recently served as pages for the Mississippi House of Representatives.  Pages generally run errands for officials and House staff.

Roark, 17, is the daughter of Carol and Al Roark.  Williamson, 18, is the daughter of Gaye Williamson and Ray Williamson.  Both are seniors at North Delta School.

Roark was sponsored by North Delta graduate and House Information Officer Barrett Climer, while Williamson was sponsored by Representative Tommy Reynolds (D – Tallahatchie).

When asked about her experience at the Capitol, Roark said, “I had such a wonderful week while getting a firsthand look of the way our House of Representatives works.  I am extremely grateful to Barrett Climer for giving me this opportunity.”

“I enjoyed my week as a page very much,” said Williamson.  “I learned several interesting facts about the House of Representatives and how bills are passed.  I am very thankful to Representative Reynolds for giving me the opportunity to experience something so great.”
