U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., has selected Harrison Lawson, a high school junior at Troup High School, to serve in the U.S. Senate Page Program in Washington, D.C. “I’m glad to welcome Harrison for this unique experience in Washington,” said Isakson. “As a U.S. Senate Page, he will have a front-row seat to see how our government works, and I hope that it will serve him well as he plans for his future.”
As Georgia’s senior senator, Isakson is allowed to appoint one Senate page from Georgia per session and there are typically four sessions per year – fall, spring and two shorter sessions over the summer.
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 also must attend academic classes each morning at the fully-accredited U.S. Senate Page School before reporting for duty on the Senate floor.
Lawson maintains a 4.28 grade point average. Over the summer, he attended Georgia Teen Institute at Oxford College of Emory University in Oxford, Ga. Lawson served as president of his sophomore class and is a leader in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) program. He is also a member of the Academic Bowl team, the History Club, the Student Advisory Club and earned a region championship as part of the school’s One Act Play Competition. He is the son of Shannon and Jonathan Lawson.
