OKLAHOMA CITY – Dustyn Russell, a senior student at Davis High School, recently served as a House page for State Rep. Wes Hilliard, D-Sulphur. 

Russell said he will long remember his week at the Oklahoma Capitol. 

“This experience has been very valuable.  I have enjoyed being a part of the legislative process and have witnessed some great debates on the House floor.  I definitely have a new appreciation for the work that is being done at the State Capitol,” said Russell. 

The Oklahoma House of Representatives maintains a program designed to involve the best young people of Oklahoma in the government of the people. 

House pages spend a week at the Oklahoma Capitol working closely with state representatives and observing the legislative process. Currently, House members are engaged in floor activity, working their way through hundreds of new House bills and 36 new joint resolutions.

Hilliard said that Russell, along with a group of  outstanding young people who conducted themselves in a manner to prove the worthiness of that selection, has served his duties with distinction, bringing honor not only upon the House of Representatives, but also his family, school and hometown. 

Although he initially was weary of spending his spring break working, Russell said the experience was worthwhile and gave him a better understanding of how state government works. 

Hilliard said it is always an honor to be a part of such a wonderful program that allows young Oklahomans to see how legislators work and gives them insight on maybe pursuing a job in politics.
