OKLAHOMA CITY – State Representative Dell Kerbs has been appointed by House Speaker Charles McCall to lead the High School Page Program for the 57th Legislature.
Every year, hundreds of students from across the state have the opportunity to take part in the High School Page Program through the Oklahoma House of Representatives at the State Capitol in Oklahoma City. Through the program, students have a chance to view the legislative process up close and gain experience working in state government.
“I believe our Page Program is a great resource to the House of Representatives,” Kerbs said. “I look forward to making it even more engaging for our high school students. They are a unique asset to our State and we have a wonderful opportunity to help educate them and cultivate the next generation.”
Pages are assigned for one week during the legislative session, which begins the first Monday in February and concludes the last Friday in May. Students in the program work in the House chamber during the daily session, run errands for the Representatives and House staff, and take part in a mock legislature.
The Page Program is available to high school sophomores, juniors and seniors.
Kerbs, a Republican, won the seat for House District 26 in 2016 and again in 2018. Prior to his election to the State House, Kerbs was a small business owner in Shawnee.
