Zachary David Smith, a student at Southern Nash High School, is pictured at right with Sen. Rick Horner, R-Wilson, in the North Carolina Senate chamber. Smith, the son of Travis and Kelly Smith of Bailey, recently spent a week serving as a Senate page. Horner sponsored Smith's application and Senate President Pro-Tem Phil Berger, R-Rockingham, made the appointment. Statewide, high school students serve as pages when the General Assembly is in session. They perform valuable duties for lawmakers and their office staff, attend daily Senate sessions and committee meetings and assist staff members with office duties during their weeklong pageships.
