MHS freshman, David Granger traveled to Austin Thursday to serve as honorary page during a session of the 85th General Assembly of the Texas Senate.

Granger received an invitation to participate in the Senate Honorary Page Program from Texas State Senator Brian Birdwell (R-Granbury). Senator Birdwell serves the citizens of the 22nd Senate District in the Texas General Assembly.

“It was a great experience.¬† I had a lot of fun and really enjoyed meeting Senator Birdwell again and having a chance to ask him questions.”, said Granger.

Granger arrived at Senator Birdwell’s office for a brief meeting, received his senate honorary page badge from the Senate Sergeant of Arms office, and had the opportunity to chat with Senator Birdwell about local government and future plans.

The Texas Senate Honorary Page Program provides students with an opportunity to serve their community and learn about the state legislature. Senate Pages may attend committee hearings and serve Senators by running errands and delivering messages in the Senate Chamber during the Legislative Session Day. The program allows students the opportunity to observe how bills are introduced, discussed, and voted on before being delivered to the Governor’s desk for signature into law.

Granger is president of the Alexander Breckenridge Society of the Children of the American Revolution in Waco. He has a special interest in public service and intends to go to law school after college.

Congratulations to David for this prestigious opportunity!
