Senator Murkowski Welcomes Fairbanks Student as Senate Page

High Schooler will Serve on Senate Floor, in Capitol Complex

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Murkowski today welcomed Kathryn R. Robinson of Fairbanks to Washington, D.C. as her selection for United States Senate Page Program – her first nomination since earning the seniority to sponsor a Senate page.

“Serving as a Senate Page is a great experience, and for me to be able to select an Alaskan high school junior every semester and summer is an investment in our next generation,” said Senator Murkowski. “It is students like Kathryn, taking part in the opportunities like the 100-year-old Senate Page tradition, who will one day be our nation’s future leaders and policymakers.”

Kathryn Robinson, a junior at West Valley High School in Fairbanks, will be participating in the daily workings of the United States Senate this spring as one of thirty Senate Pages. Pages are selected by senior members of the Senate and tasked with delivering correspondence and legislative materials within the Capitol, preparing the Senate chambers and assisting all 100 Senators.  While serving in the Senate, Kathryn will attend classes at the United States Senate Page School, known for its excellence in academics and commitment to future leaders.
