Denmark Student Selected to be Congressional Page

Posted on May 7, 2010 by

FOR  IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

May 7, 2010

 

DENMARK  STUDENT  WILL   SERVE AS  CONGRESSIONAL  PAGE

WASHINGTON, D.C.– Denmark’s Kirsten Larson is going to Washington.  Larsen, a junior at Denmark High School, was selected from a pool of secondary school applicants on the basis of academic achievement, aptitude and the sponsorship of Congressman Steve Kagen, M.D.

“It was a pleasure to lend my recommendation to Miss Larson,” Kagen said.  “Her background, dedication and her commitment to excellence are emblematic of Badger State values.  She’s an excellent representative of the people of Denmark, of Brown County and of Northeast Wisconsin.”

Pages have been serving the House of Representatives for nearly two hundred years. Working as a team, they assist Members with their legislative duties, deliver correspondence and small packages within the congressional complex, answer phones in the Member cloakrooms, and prepare the House Floor for sessions.

“We’re very proud of her,” Larson’s mother Jody said.  “She has worked very hard and she’s a very kind person.  We told her, Washington can use someone like you.”

The program, for high school juniors, requires applicants to sustain a GPA of 3.0 or higher in core academic subjects, complete an extensive application, and obtain the sponsorship of member of the House.  Larson’s resume included 150 hours of community volunteer service and participation in more than a dozen extracurricular activities.

On her application, Larson described her self as “incurably curious,” noting, “I love problem-solving, such as untying giant knots.  As long as there is a knot, I will challenge myself to untangle it.”

The daughter of Dr. Chris and Jody Larson, Kristen will serve from June 6 until July 2.
