GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - Wingo Elementary sixth grader Trevor Grant, son of Jonathan and Michele Grant, recently served as a legislative page at the state capitol in Frankfort for state Rep. Fred Nesler.
Earlier in the school year, Trevor submitted an application to participate to Rep. Nesler. It included an essay in response to the prompt, "Why I Would Like to Be a Legislative Page" and a piece of art he created that is related to the work of the Wingo Elementary Family Resource Center.
Trevor joined some 164 other students from across the Commonwealth for Legislative Page Day. The Family Resource and Youth Services Centers Coalition of Kentucky sponsored the unique experience.
"I learned more about how our government works since I was able to actually spend some time on the floor of the House of Representatives,” Trevor said. He concluded with a broad smile, “It was a great day."
