Sen. Johnny Isakson welcomes Alex Little of Gainesville to the Senate Page Program on Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2018. Little is a student at North Hall High School.

A North Hall High School junior will serve as a U.S. Senate page in Washington, D.C., after being appointed by Johnny Isakson.

Alexander Little of Gainesville began serving Tuesday and will continue through Jan. 25, according to a release from Sen. Isakson’s office.

“Alex Little has demonstrated an interest in public service, and I’m delighted that we’re able to offer him the opportunity to work in government at a young age through the Senate page program,” Isakson said. “I’m confident that Georgia will be well represented by Alex during his time in Washington.”

According to Isakson’s office, Little maintains a 4.0 grade point average and is a part of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math program. He is also captain of the varsity academic team and a member of the Beta Club and the junior varsity tennis team. 

The Senate Page Program dates back to 1829, when the first Senate page was appointed by Sen. Daniel Webster. Senate pages are required to be high school juniors and at least age 16.

Senate page duties include preparing the Senate chamber for sessions, delivering legislation and correspondence inside the Congressional compound and distributing statutes and amendments on the Senate floor. 

Senate pages who serve in the fall and spring must also attend academic classes each morning at the fully accredited U.S. Senate Page School before reporting for duty on the Senate floor.
