Schiff Announces that Natalie Queally will Serve as Fall 2010 Congressional Page

Washington, DC– Each semester, the leadership of the Democratic and Republican parties select Members of the U.S. House of Representatives by random lottery draw to nominate students for the House Page Program. Today, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) won the lottery this year and had the opportunity to nominate a student from the 29th Congressional District to be part of the Page Program during the fall of 2010. He nominated Natalie Queally and she will come to Washington, DC to participate in the program that runs from Monday, Sept. 6, 2010, through Friday, January 21, 2011.

“The House Page Program is a great opportunity for students to come to Washington, DC, experiencing Congress in action and assisting with official House duties,” Rep. Schiff said. “The Page Program is a tradition more than 200 years old, and one I am pleased that Natalie will have the opportunity to experience.”

Among other things, House Pages deliver correspondence and legislative material throughout the Capitol Complex. They also work within the Democratic and Republican cloakrooms taking messages and answering phones.

Natalie is a straight-A student at Glendale High School, ranking sixth in her class of 663 students. She also participates in the Girls Varsity Track Program at GHS. In addition, Natalie is a member of Salem Lutheran Church, where she participates in a youth group.
