Dupree High School juniors, Emily Olsen, Kinzee Peterson, and Lany LaPlante, applied and were among those selected to serve as Legislative Pages for the 2022 legislative season in Pierre.
While in the Page position in Pierre at the Capitol, Pages will be distributing legislative documents, running errands for legislators, answering phones, assisting in the Legislative Post Office, and attending committee meetings. Pages are not paid employees, they are volunteers. However, they are provided a small stipend to assist with their living expenses, such as paying for a place to stay and for buying food while in Pierre, while serving the government process.
The Dupree students are looking forward to the experience where they can learn, hands-on, about the process of our state government. Emily Olsen is the daughter of Kathy & Shawn Olsen, Kinzee Peterson is the daughter of Arliss & Kirby Peterson, and Lany LaPlante is the daughter of Kenna & Sid LaPlante.
