U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D., Toledo) today will announce the appointment of a Whitmer High School junior as a page to the House of Representatives during the fall term.
Amanda Alfarah, 16, of West Toledo will attend 11th-grade classes during the mornings at the U.S. Capitol, then serve as a House page during afternoon legislative sessions.
Amanda is an enterprising young woman who has had to work hard, Miss Kaptur said. Service as a House page is a unique opportunity, and I look forward to her service to the people of the United States in the U.S. Congress.
