      Local Teen Getting Opportunity to Work with Richmond Lawmakers

      Richmond, VA - Halifax County High School student Heather Griles is in Richmond working as a head page for the General Assembly.

      Griles got to be a part of the page program last year and was given the opportunity to return to oversee the other 38 pages. She says she is learning a lot about policymaking and meeting lots of new friends.

      "I'm really glad I did it, because it's a once in a lifetime experience, and I got to do it twice," Griles said.

      Griles and the other pages will be back to school when the seven week program ends on February 23.
