Senate President Robert Stivers and the Kentucky State Capitol were in good hands on Wednesday, March 2nd.

McKenzie Osborne, a fifth grade student at Jesse D Lay Elementary, was chosen to be a legislative page in Frankfort.  She was chosen after writing an essay detailing the impact that the Family Resource Center (FRYSC) has on her school. Once at the capitol, McKenzie was honored to be selected as the page for Senator Stivers, who represents Knox and Laurel Counties.

McKenzie was seated beside Senator Stivers while he led the legislative session and assisted him as needed. She enjoyed learning a lesson about the legislative process as Senator Stivers took time to explain the process and procedures as he conducted the session. She received a certificate and professional photos for her time at the capitol building.

When asked what she enjoyed most about her day in Frankfort, McKenzie shared two things.  She said her favorite part was sitting on the floor while he led the session. She also said he talked to her about his son who is being deployed to Ukraine.  McKenzie was the only student from Knox County selected to serve as a page during this session.
