Jun. 07, 2013 @ 08:20 PM


Charlotte Wester, a student at Kerr-Vance Academy, recently spent time at the N.C. House of Representatives, serving as a page. She was sponsored by Thom Tillis, N.C. Rep-R (Mecklenburg County).

Her duties consisted of delivering bills and amendments for representative during the daily House sessions and committee meetings, lending her assistance to the offices of individual representatives and running other errands around the Legislature. Like other pages, she spent a week assisting members and staff at the General Assembly while learning about the structure of state government.

While the General Assembly is in session, high school students (grades 9-12) statewide serve as pages. Tillis personally appoints them and introduces them to members and citizens in the House gallery at the start of each week during Monday night’s session.

She is the daughter of John and Donna Wester of Henderson.
